The Pacers try to grab control of their first-round series against the Raptors in Game 3 at the Fieldhouse on Thursday night.
In order to do so, they will need to keep holding down DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry while also finding a way to slow down Jonas Valanciunas. Ian Mahinmi can impact the effort on Valanciunas if his lower back allows, although it appears that even if Mahinmi can play, he certainly won't be a full strength.
Frank Vogel indicated he could make some changes to the rotation with or without Ian, although he certainly wasn't tipping his cards earlier on game day, as Clark Wade shared.
The Fieldhouse will not be sold out for Game 3 but it should be plenty loud so hopefully the Pacers' play makes it even louder.
