The Pacers take on the Bucks for the first regular-season matchup between the Central Division rivals.

The Pacers look to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they visit the Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday night.

The two teams split a pair of preseason games in October, but now the result matters as both teams sit 2-2 in the Central Division after winning their respective prior games. The Pacers could use a big bounce-back game from Myles Turner to give Paul George some added support. Turner was saddled with foul trouble against the Lakers and made just two of seven shots to finish with just nine points.

The Bucks will be looking to support Giannis Antetokounmpo who has been filling up the stat sheet with over 23 points and nine rebounds per game thus far.
