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

The Pacers complete their four-game homestand when they host the short-handed Pelicans at the Fieldhouse on Thursday.

The Pacers look to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff race when they host the New Orleans Pelicans.

Earlier today, Frank Vogel said he wanted the Pacers' offense to pick up the pace to create more scoring opportunities. Even with the bigger lineups he doesn't want to slow down.

The Pacers should be plenty motivated at tip time since they are in a three-way battle for the final two spots in the East. Meanwhile the Pelicans are on the verge of playoff elimination in the West with injuries making the lottery position more important over the final 12 games of the season.

Speaking of injuries, the Pacers only list Jordan Hill (personal reasons) as probable.

The Pelicans? Well, they will only have nine players available and play without Anthony Davis (knee), Eric Gordon (finger), Tyreke Evans (knee) and Ryan Anderson (groin) among others.
