The Pacers will be short-handed as they try to build on their solid play of late by tipping off 2015 in Milwaukee against the Bucks.
The Pacers will be without George Hill (groin) and possibly his backup, C.J. Watson which will put Donald Sloan back in the mix handling the point guard duties. The Bucks are battling through injury issues as well without Larry Sanders (illness...resisting easy joke, here) and Ersan Ilyasova (concussion), as well as rookie Jabari Parker who is out for good with an ACL.
Through the injury issues, Milwaukee continues to win more than they lose with a dynamic, young backcourt led by Brandon Knight and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
