Pelicans vs. Pacers: Game thread, linesups, TV info and more

The Pacers face a daunting task to try to slow down the big, front-court talent of AD and Boogie Cousins the Pelicans will roll out at BLF.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
The Pacers host the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday evening for their only visit to Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season.

The Pacers are looking to bounce back after consecutive losses while working out the kinks of their fresh playing rotation with Myles Turner back in the mix. Unfortunately, Domas Sabonis is listed as out with a calf contusion which will likely throw Al Jefferson back into the mix since the Pacers will need front-court help.

The bigs will need to show up big for the Pacers considering the presence of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins on the New Orleans front line. Those guys are both averaging huge double-doubles and the Pacers have to find a way to minimize the damage until at least one of them rotates to the bench. John Schuhmann shows how the defense and overall efficiency of the Pelicans deteriorates when not playing the duo together.
