The Pacers are rolling after making big plays down the stretch to beat the Golden State Warriors on Sunday evening, marking the sixth Pacers' win in seven tries. Now they have a heat-check game on the road in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night.
Indiana caught a break when Steph Curry missed the last game with an ankle injury and now they catch the Thunder without Kevin Durant who had to shut it down for a bit to take care of a lingering foot injury. Take a look at the NBA teams with the most lost games on their roster due to injury and then ask me if I care.
As for OKC, Russell Westbrook has proven he is more than capable of carrying the extra load this season without Durant around to threaten the opposition. The Thunder made some big moves at the trade deadline which will have Kyle Singler and Enes Kanter in the starting lineup. Their debut resulted in a 119-94 drubbing of the Denver Nuggets, so the Pacers will have to be on point from the tip to have a chance to win in the end.
