The Pacers visit the Spurs on Wednesday night to complete the worst portion of their remaining schedule.
After taking care of the Rockets in Houston on Monday, the Pacers are playing with house money on the road in San Antonio, but the opportunity remains to build some legit momentum for the last six weeks of the season.
Al Jefferson remains questionable with dental pain and since the Pacers will head home for a couple of days before heading to Atlanta, keeping Jefferson on ice makes sense. Plus, Rakeem Christmas has brought some much needed energy to the front court rotation, so another opportunity to see what Rak can do against a strong opponent is a bonus.
The Spurs have won six of their last seven games including a 110-106 win over the Pacers two weeks ago at the Fieldhouse. In that game, Kawhi Leonard led the way with 32 points for the Spurs.
Tony Parker (thigh contusion) is questionable for the Spurs. Al Jefferson (dental work) is questionable for the pacers.
