The Pacers should be at full strength when they try to earn a much-needed road win over the Magic.

George Hill is off the injury report after battling through the bad side of food poisoning for a couple of days which kept him out in Miami. Also, according to Candace Buckner, C.J. Miles will give it a go after getting a scare with his right shoulder early in the Miami game on Monday.

Even with Miles back, the Pacers will likely stay with a big lineup to start which is morphing into the default lineup for Frank Vogel as the team continues to see inconsistent (to be kind) results from the spread lineup.

Keep in mind, making the spread lineup work requires a few new face getting familiar working together which is also a factor in these tight road games. New faces trying to get comfortable to rely on one another, understand where guys will be and how they will react when the heat is on down the stretch.

I touched on this topic along with how good the Pacers might be if they can put it all together this year in my latest Pacers discussion on The Phil Naessens Show.
