The Pacers face Thunder on Saturday night as the combustible duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant make their annual visit to the Fieldhouse.

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers will try for a rare season sweep of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday when the OKC crew visits the Fieldhouse.

The Pacers used a huge three-pointer from Myles Turner to spark a late rally to win that last meeting in OKC on Feb. 19. Monta Ellis led the Pacers with 27 points in that game. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook didn't exactly have off games, either with Durant pumping in 31 points while Russ added 23 points and 18 assists.

Needless to say, the Thunder duo will demand much of the Pacers attention on defense. OKC arrives healthy but will be playing their third game in four nights after notching wins at Boston on Wednesday and Philly on Friday.

According to Candace Bucknerfrom the Pacers shootaround, Ian Mahinmi (sore lower back) is feeling much better but remains questionable pending his reaction to the morning workout. Ty Lawson is also questionable and available but not likely to play.

The game is sold out which could create an interesting atmosphere early in the game if the Indiana vs. Kentucky game goes down to the wire which would happen in the middle of the first quarter.
