The Pacers continue trying to catch the Bulls in the Eastern Conference standings when the two team play at the Fieldhouse on Friday night.
Jimmy Bulter blocked Paul George's game winning attempt in the Bulls' 96-95 win on Nov. 16. Those two points are all that separate the Central Division rivals in the standings. The Pacers have yet to lose since that game while the Bulls only loss is to the lethal Golden State Warriors, part of a quality West Coast trip that included wins at Phoenix and Portland.
Both teams are in better shape than they were in that last meeting. George Hill and Rodney Stuckey are back for the Pacers with only rookie Myles Turner (thumb) remaining out. The Bulls lost Derrick Rose during the last matchup but he is back now. Mike Dunleavy (back) and Aaron Brooks (hamstring) are out for the Bulls.
