The Indiana Pacers host the Milwaukee Bucks at the Fieldhouse, looking to win their third consecutive game. The budding win streak started on Tuesday up in Milwaukee when the Pacers hung on to hold off the Bucks 110-100.

Since Saturday, Evan Turner has joined the fray and will play his second game with the Pacers as they try to slow down the Bucks. Milwaukee demolished Turner's former team in Philadelphia on Monday, tuning up the Sixers, 130-100. Ouch.

The Pacers were please to get 50 points from the bench on Tuesday against the Lakers, but the Bucks made that effort look pedestrian with 72 bench points in Philly. O.J. Mayo led the way with 25 points and the addition of Ramon Sessions and Jeff Adrien gives Milwaukee a solid reserve rotation which will give the Pacers new-look second unit a much better test than the crew the Lakers trotted out there on Tuesday.
