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

The Pacers are closing in on the end of the season and need a win over the Mavericks to keep hopes of playing in the post-season alive.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers have just ten game remaining in the regular season with some heavy lifting remaining to stay in the hunt for the playoffs. While sitting just one game behind Boston and tied with New Jersey, the Pacers have to actually put up more wins than losses to make it happen.

A home game against the Dallas Mavericks offers an opportunity for a quality win against a tough opponent also trying to find their stride leading up to the playoffs. The Mavs would have to really fold to miss the playoffs in the West, but they are just 5-5 in their last ten with guard grumblings making more headlines than quality play.

The Pacers expect to have David West and Rodney Stuckey which should give the Pacers an added boost. Wayyyy back in November, Donald Sloan went berserk and led the Pacers past the Mavs 111-100 in Dallas in a game that will have little to no bearing on how things play out at BLF tonight.
