The Pacers remain on the road for one more game when they visit the Hornets in Charlotte for the second time this season.

The Pacers play their fifth consecutive road game against the Hornets in Charlotte on Monday night which will be broadcast nationally on TNT.

Hopefully, the juice from a TNT game will keep the Pacers focused and bring the energy to close up the road trip and back-to-back with a winning effort. The Pacers will have a little more time than usual to recover for the back-to-back after beating the Hawks following a 1 p.m ET tip on Sunday.

The Pacers were blown out in their first trip to Charlotte early in the season, 122-100. In that game, the Hornets torched the Pacers for 75 points in the first half and cruised home from there. The Pacers defense has fared better of late and the Hornets have been struggling after a strong start to the season.

But the return to health of Cody Zeller has the starting lineup back healthy and ready to face the Pacers. Depth may be an issue with Frank Kaminsky and Ramon Sessions out. The Pacers list Lavoy Allen (knee) as questionable after he missed the game in Atlanta.
