The Kings won the first game on their home court in an overtime thriller that saw the Pacers rally late and nearly steal a win before getting nipped at the buzzer on a put-back bucket by Carl Landry.
This time around, both teams have similar records and appear to be battling the mid-season blahs. The Pacers are showing some signs of life and good health, although Lavoy Allen has been ruled out for the next two games (thanks, Candace Buckner), but since Frank Vogel was having trouble finding Allen minutes, the front-court rotation won't see a big impact.
The Kings are flat out struggling, losers of their last eight games. Center, and freshly minted All-Star, DeMarcus Cousins is the main problem facing the Pacers as he continues to work through a nagging ankle injury while remaining a beast on the court.
