The Pacers are taking their preseason home show on the road as they host the Milwaukee Bucks at the Ford Center in Evansville on Wednesday evening.
The Pacers have Paul George listed as doubtful due to an illness which will add Glenn Robinson III to the starting lineup. The Pacers will focus on trying to improve their defensive impact on the game without fouling while still trying to take care of the ball and push the pace on offense.
The Bucks are 2-0 in preseason with wins over the Bulls and Mavericks. Jabari Parker has looked great so far and appears ready to live up to the expectations he had coming out of Duke as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft. Combined with Giannis Antetokounmpo, a break-out year from Parker would go a long way to making the Bucks a problem and also raise what are now muted expectations after losing Khris Middleton with a torn hammy.
