Pistons vs. Pacers: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

The Paces face a familiar foe on Friday when the Pistons come to town for the second time this season.

The Pacers play the last of six consecutive home games on Friday night when they host the Detroit Pistons at the Fieldhouse.

The game will be the second visit by the Pistons and third game between the two teams this season. Wins in the first two games went to the home team as they remain engaged among a group of eight teams fighting for playoff real estate in the East.

The Pacers will look to bounce back from a disheartening loss to OKC on Wednesday which snapped a four-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Pistons will be playing on a back-to-back but should be feeling pretty good after blitzing the Hawks, 105-91 on Thursday to snap a seven-game losing streak.

While this game ends the current homestand for the Pacers, it also begins a relatively favorable nine-game stretch to end the month of December.
