The Pacers are hunting for a road win Saturday night when they play the Wizards in the second game of a back-to-back after losing in Charlotte on Friday.
The Pacers will get no sympathy from the Wiz since they too are on a back-to-back after losing in Cleveland on Friday. John Wall tweaked an ankle in that game which may minimize impact on the game if he is able to play.
As the Pacers continue trying to hold onto a playoff spot, win against the recently surging Wiz is doubly important. A win keeps the Pacers in front of Washington but also will give the blue and gold the tie breaker advantage with a 2-1 head-to-head record, essentially giving the Pacers an extra game ahead of the Wiz.
