The Pacers try to build on their positive momentum after snapping a three-game losing streak in the starting debut of rookie Myles Turner on Thursday.

The Pacers complete their season series with the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night at the Fieldhouse.

The Pacers lost a 129-126 shootout to the Nuggets two weeks ago in Denver where the lack of defense set a poor tone for the four-game road trip. In hindsight though, the loss also turned out to be a breakout game for Myles Turner who scored 25 points in 29 minutes and has continued to show he belongs in the playing rotation.

Turner will make his second start as the Pacers hope to have the rest of their playing rotation respond as they did against Atlanta when all of the pieces seem to fit in a better role with Turner at the starting PF spot.

The Nuggets are 2-4 since beating the Pacers but continue to lure opponents into high scoring games. Former HSE star, Gary Harris continues to start at shooting guard for the Nuggets averaging over 11 points per game.
