The Pacers look to even the season series against the Pistons at home after losing the first regular-season matchup in Detroit last week.

The Pacers return home for a Hickory Friday night game against the Detroit Pistons at the Fieldhouse where they will don the white version of the Hoosiers themed uniforms.

Which players will be wearing the new unis is more important for the Pacers with Domantas Sabonis considered a game-time decision due to an illness. Sabonis was absent in Detroit last week and the Pacers missed his presence in the 114-97 loss to the Pistons.

In that game, Tobias Harris provided and offensive punch, but the physical dominance of Andre Drummond tipped the game in Detroit's favor as the big man hauled in 21 rebounds and and added a will-killing finish through Myles Turner as the Pistons put away the W.

The Pacers should get a boost from the home crowd at BLF where they should be able to deliver a better shooting performance on the friendly floor.
