Bucks vs. Pacers: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

The Pacers will try to remove the bitter taste of defeat after a tough loss in Chicago when host the Bucks on New Year's Eve.

James Brosher-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers will start their New Year's Eve party early against the Milwaukee Bucks with a 6 p.m. ET tip from the Fieldhouse.

The Pacers return from Chicago with injury issues, so just who will be available for action may not be known until game time. Jordan Hill (dental work), C.J. Miles (back) and Ian Mahinmi (knee) are all questionable. Myles Turner stepped up in his first game back last night and played 22 minutes and will likely need to do the same.

Paul George, George Hill and Lavoy Allen all played around 40 minutes in the overtime loss which may force Frank Vogel to expand his playing rotation even if some of the questionable trio can play.

The Bucks have dangerous talent but arrive at BLF struggling, having lost three consecutive games and six of their last eight. They are also playing without head coach Jason Kidd as he is recovering from hip replacement surgery.
