Pacers Podcast: Pacers shift focus to winning third consecutive game and one on the road in Miami

The latest Locked on Pacers episode offers an off-day update on the Pacers as they made their way to Miami out of the snow and cold following practice at the Fieldhouse.

NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers have been getting a boost from their youth with Glenn Robinson III answering the call to play big whenever needed and Myles Turner continuing to evolve as an anchor on the defensive end.

Combine those developments with two quality wins at home and the Pacers appear ready to put the road woes that held them back in the early season behind them. With four losses to sub-.500 teams on the road already, the Pacers have a chance to dial in and take care of two teams that have struggled so far this season in Miami and New Orleans.

Health may play a factor as Rodney Stuckey is listed as questionable. He may be able to play through the pain of a knee contusion, but if the training staff is cautious with Stuck, how will that impact the playing rotation with Monta Ellis also out?

Should be fun to watch how the Pacers handle things on the road this time around. Can they take another step forward or will they return to that .500 lifestyle?
