The Pacers and Bucks will both be battling to get right when they face off in Milwaukee on Friday.

The Pacers will try to fix things on the fly as they play their third consecutive road game against the Bucks in Milwaukee on Friday night.

After two miserable losses in Dalas and Atlanta, the Pacers face a challenge in Milwaukee where they were drubbed in early January by the Bucks, 122-101. The Pacers played that game without Victor Oladipo and returned home five days later to beat the Bucks with Vic, 109-96. A similar situation sets itself up this time around as the Pacers will host the Bucks for the final regular season meeting on Monday.

Both teams are battling for the same playoff real estate but dealing with a post-All-Star struggles. While the Pacers have lost their last two, the Bucks are riding a three-game losing streak. So there is plenty on the line with regard to playoff positioning and tie-breaker implications which will require a higher level of effort and execution on the road to put the Pacers in position for play for the win at the end of the game.
