The Pacers will try to even up their season series with the Chicago Bulls when the two teams meet at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.
The home team has won the prior three meetings with both games in Chicago going down to the wire. Leveling the series tonight keeps the Pacers' chances for earning the tiebreaker with Chicago alive. The Pacers remain in a tight battle for one of the last two playoff spots in the East but will find a Bulls team desperate to stay in the same battle.
The Bulls have lost four in a row, reportedly had a team meeting on Sunday that was denied after the Bulls lost to Atlanta on Monday night, and arrive at BLF to play on a back-to-back. Joakim Noah (shoulder) is out and E'Twaun Moore (hamstring) is questionable for the Bulls while Pau Gasol is day-to-day but did play 34 minutes on Monday.
As for the Pacers, their injury report is cleaning heading into game time and the remaining question now is which 9-10 players will make up the rotation and as Frank Vogel said, they join the Bulls in desperate search of a win tonight.
Vogel: "It's a desperation game for both teams... We've gotta win this game."— Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) March 29, 2016
