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

The Pacers look to bounce back after a brutal showing in Detroit on Tuesday, against a Mavericks team that fared far better.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers return home to play the second game in two nights when they host the Dallas Mavericks at BLF.

Indiana will look to bounce back after arguably their worst loss of the season when you consider the opponent, spot on the schedule and context of the game against a rival playoff contender. It was so bad, Nate McMillan said he would consider lineup changes. With Victor Oladipo and Domas Sabonis questionable, McMillan may not have a choice, but if all are available, either Bojan Bogdanovic or Thad Young would seem like most likely to come off the bench, depending on how they coaching staff wants to set the matchups.

The Mavs are also on a back-to-back after beating Toronto on Tuesday. Yes, the Mavs only have 10 win but are not rolling over as their win over the Raptors will attest. Former IU/Park Tudor star, Yog Ferrell plays quality minutes off the bench for Dallas, although fellow reserve guard J.J. Barea, always a problem child for the Pacers, led the way on Tuesday with 20 points off the pine.
