The Pacers host the Pistons on Saturday night on the back half of a back-to-back after failing to find a way to shoot for a win in Atlanta on Friday night.
The Pacers played the Hawks very well for several stretches but as they went down the home stretch in the fourth quarter the Blue and Gold couldn't get over the hump to get the requisite stops and/or buckets to steal a road win. Hopefully some home cooking will get the Pacers rolling as they begin a homestand before taking a break next weekend for the All-Star Game.
Rodney Stuckey remains out and Ian Mahinmi may give it a go after staying home to tend to his sore lower back.
Like the Pacers, the Pistons have been on the win and loss roller coaster of late with a 2-3 record in their last five games, although the losses were to Cleveland, Toronto and Boston.
