The Pacers begin a back-to-back set on Saturday at Barclays Center where they will face the Brooklyn Nets.

The question for the Pacers is: Will Paul play or won't he?

Paul George remains a game-time decision with a right leg contusion and if he can't go, Solomon Hill will start in his place, presumably to maintain the rest of the playing rotation in their regular roles. The Pacers continue needing wins to keep a step ahead of Detroit in the standings as the end of the season draws into view.

The Nets are playing for absolutely nothing which is actually dangerous, as the Cleveland Cavaliers found out on Thursday when the Nets beat LeBron and the boys, 104-95. Despite being eliminated from the playoffs for some time now, the Nets have no concern with draft lottery position since their pick is going to Boston. Thus, winning is the only thing they have to focus on with no sliver linings for losses.
