NBA: Preseason-Indiana Pacers at Cleveland Cavaliers Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers finish preseason play by hosting Maccabi Haifa at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday evening.

Maccabi Haifa is an elite team in the Israeli Basketball Premier League, finishing runner-up in the 2016-17 season. Former Atlanta Hawks high flyer turned NBA journeman, Josh Smith recently signed with Maccabi Haifa. The team lost an earlier preseason game to the Utah Jazz, 117-78.

As for the Pacers, they will roll out their new uniforms filled with plenty of new faces for the first time at BLF. With several key players resting in Detroit on Monday, we can assume the regular rotation guys will get minutes on Tuesday since it is the last preseason opportunity before the real games start next Wednesday.

Make sure you add your thoughts and observations about the game in the comments.
