Pacers vs. Pelicans: Game thread, lineups, odds, TV info and more

The Pacers will try to improve their poor record in back-to-back games when they visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night.

The Pacers will try to bounce back from a frustrating loss in Miami on Wednesday night when they complete a back-to-back roadie at New Orleans against the Pelicans.

Poor shooting doomed the Pacers against the Heat, so hopefully that trend won't carry over. The Pacers are 1-4 in back-to-backs with their only win coming last Saturday when they rallied to beat the Blazers at the Fieldhouse.

Rodney Stuckey (left hammy) is out for the Pacers along with Monta Ellis which makes a dent in the reserve rotation.

The Pelicans are 6-5 with Jrue Holiday after the point guard missed the first 12 games for personal reasons and recently missing three games with a toe injury. New Orleans went 2-13 in those games without Holiday.
