Pacers vs. Bucks: Preseason game thread, lineups and more

Preseason play comes to a close for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee.

NBA: Preseason-Milwaukee Bucks at Indiana Pacers James Brosher-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers and Bucks meet again to complete the Pacers six-game preseason schedule on Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Pacers rolled past the Bucks 101-83 in their first meeting down in Evansville. Since then the young and very long Bucks have lost games to Chicago and Detroit.

Early in that first game, the Bucks length gave the Pacers problems and may again, if Kidd starts a similar lineup with Thon Maker and John Henson in the lineup along with Giannis Antetokounmpo. Jason Kidd has been using different lineups in preseason, so he may shift gears again.

The Pacers will have their full starting lineup available again with the intent to play their regular minutes at least through the first three quarter. Nate McMillan wants to play the starting and reserve rotations as he would in the regular season, but will leave the fourth quarter open for a deeper dive into the bench.

C.J. Miles (knee) and Aaron Brooks (knee) are not expected to play while Kevin Seraphin (lower back) is questionable. The Bucks remain without Khris Middleton (hamstring).
