The Pacers have an opportunity to raise their profile by handing the Warriors their first loss of the season.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors come out and play the Pacers at the Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.

The Pacers are pumped, ready to measure their improvement against the champs and give it their all to end the 22-0 start Golden State has posted.

Considering the undefeated start and the fact the Warriors get the same effort mentioned above from every opponent these days, they gotta be due for an off night, right? The Pacers may be playing the dreaded first game home after a road trip, but they have had a couple of days off at home. The Warriors are playing their fifth consecutive road game and third game in four days.

If not tonight, then when will the Dubs lose? Unfortunately, many a national and local media outlet feels the same way and has been proclaiming this the game the Warriors will lose. Surely word of this trend will make its way into the Dubs' locker room which should give them the requisite motivation to drill another team.

So the Pacers will have to play their best to make it happen, which is how it should be.
