The Pacers try to even up their record against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday when the teams meet at the Fieldhouse for their fourth and final regular season game.
The Pacers beat the the Hornets at BLF in December as they slowed down Kemba Walker in the pick n’ roll and enjoyed 22 points each from Paul George and Myles Turner. The defense was more passive in their last meeting in Charlotte allowing Walker to run the show with 28 points and seven assists. IU/Washington legend, Cody Zeller also posted a double-double in the last game.
The Pacers will have to recover from an ugly loss in New York on Tuesday and show some mental and physical toughness to win their fourth consecutive game at home. The Hornets will be without starting guard Nicolas Batum who will miss his second game due migraine headaches.
