The Pacers return to regular season action on Wednesday night. Let’s go!!!!!

NBA: Preseason-Indiana Pacers at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers host the Brooklyn Nets to tip off the 2017-18 NBA regular season at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

If you are averse to change this may be a rough one. The Pacers have three new starters and will play at least six new players in their expected nine-man rotation. If Nate McMillan extends to ten players, new “old” face, Damien Wilkins will likely get the nod.

Oh, there are also new uniforms for the players and a new court design at BLF. The court has a dark blue exterior with a much lighter playing surface which really pops under the, you guessed it, NEW lighting which brightens the playing surface.

Now all the Pacers have to do is start this NEW season with a win.

As for the Nets, they continue to rebuild on minimal resources, adding D’Angelo Russell over the summer to play with Jeremy Lin in the backcourt. Timofey Mozgov came along with Russell and provides an intriguing matchup Myles Turner needs to win.
