The Pacers rolled to a 105-87 win in the first meeting at the United Center, led by 25 points from Victor Oladipo. A similar result should be expected at the Fieldhouse as the Bulls arrive as the worst team in the NBA on a nine-game losing streak with a 3-19 overall record.
So for the Pacers, human nature may be a stronger opponent than the Bulls as they try to generate some positive momentum at home with a second consecutive win before the schedule turns more difficult with visits from Cleveland, Denver and OKC on the horizon.
Corey Joseph (shoulder) is listed as questionable for the Pacers.
