The Pacers return home to the daunting task of playing the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night.
The Pacers will look a little different on Monday after swapping out Chase Budinger for Ty Lawson over the weekend. Lawson joined the team shootaround on Monday and Frank Vogel said afterward that he plans to find some minutes for Lawson against the Spurs. Both C.J. Miles (calf) and Rodney Stuckey (illness) are questionable so the Pacers will actually need Lawson to fill in some minutes off the bench.
The Spurs bring back David West for the first time after spending his last four season with the Pacers. How much West will play is to be determined considering the Spurs constant shuffling of active players. However, in their last game against the Kings, the Spurs rested Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green while welcoming the return of Manu Ginobili. That would seem to indicate the Spurs will throw the full roster at the Pacers.
The Spurs have been magnificent this season drafting closely behind the Golden State Warriors in the West. Since the Pacers lost to the Spurs in San Antonio on Dec. 21, the Spurs have lost just four games. Goodness.
