The Pacers’ preseason play continues against the Pistons in downtown Detroit.

The Indiana Pacers visit the Detroit Pistons for their third preseason game at Little Caesars Arena.


The Pacers will have a skeleton crew running the floor on Monday with several players resting for the team’s final preseason game back at the Fieldhouse on Tuesday. That gives Nate McMillan and fans a chance to see several players expose their potential in a game situation.

Among the intriguing options for the Pacers tonight, keep an eye on Alex Poythress, Ike Anigbogu, DeQuan Jones and Ben Moore.

That likely won’t be the case this year, but we’ll see if they can keep up the volume shooting for at least two preseason games.

The Pistons are 1-1 in preseason play with a close loss to Charlotte and a 20-point win over Atlanta. Reggie Jackson missed the first two games but could be available against the Pacers. Other new faces in Detroit include former Celtics guard, Avery Bradley and rookie Luke Kennard.

Neither FOX Sports Indiana nor Detroit’s local TV is broadcasting this game, but it will be available on League Pass so find the feed through any means necessary. As always, Mark Boyle will be providing HD visual with his radio call.
