The Pacers face a strong test on the road Tuesday night when they visit the Washington Wizards. George Hill will return to the starting lineup after missing the past three games leaving Myles Turner as the only rotation player still on the shelf.
The spread starting lineup hasn't put up good numbers thus far but the spread group with Chase Budinger lit up the Bucks in third quarter on Saturday. Of course, that was due to the threes dropping from everywhere which is not something this group can rely on from night to night.
John Wall and the Wiz started the season with high expectations to finish among the top tier of Eastern Conference teams. After a 1-4 stretch (with the one W over San Antonio) it appears Washington is finding their flow after winning their last three games. The Pacers and Wizards will be battling for playoff real estate all season so consider this a key game no matter what your calendar says.
