NBA: Utah Jazz at Indiana Pacers Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

After winning their last three games at home, the Pacers play five of their next six games on the road starting Wednesday night in Charlotte.

The last two wins of the recent homestand came without a helping hand from the team’s all-star, Victor Oladipo. After playing four minutes on Saturday against the Hawks, Oladipo aggravated his knee and did not return and then sat out the team’s impressive win over the Jazz on Monday night.

Vic remains questionable on the Pacers injury list and in his recent appearance of Vic on 6 with WRTV’s Dave Furst, Oladipo didn’t commit to returning against the Hornets and didn’t want to say he could have played on Monday if he had to.

So the Pacers may need another strong team effort to nullify Kemba Walker who has score 103 points in his last two games and now leads the NBA in scoring.

Myles Turner also showed up on the injury list as questionable due a sprained left ankle. Turner tweaked the ankle midway through the game on Monday, went back to the training room but was able to return and play. But how the ankle reacts the next day is always a concern and that’s what landed Turner on the list.

Plenty of good stuff in the links today as Bojan Bogdanovic gets his turn in the spotlight thanks to his great play through the first 17 games. Bogey has scored 20 or more points in three of the last four games, making over 60% of his threes during that stretch. So who is the top 3-point shooter in the NBA?

Hopefully, Bogey packed that hot shooting touch for the road game.
