The Pacers begin a tough back-to-back on the road in Charlotte where they will try to figure out how to slow down the Hornets.

The Pacers get their last regular season shot at beating the Charlotte Hornets on Friday when the two teams wrap up their season series at Time Warner Cable Arena.

The Hornets won both prior meetings at the Fieldhouse, dishing out two frustrating L's for the Pacers to choke down on their home court. Kemba Walkers pick 'n roll prowess and Marvin Williams' shooting proficiency make Charlotte a tough matchup for the Pacers. By spreading the floor, Williams can pull a rim Pacers' rim protector to the perimeter and create more space for Kemba to Kemba.

Should be no surprises for the Pacers tonight so how they adjust the game plan this time around will be a prime point of interest from the opening tip.

C.J. Miles (calf) is still out for the Pacers.
