The Pacers host the Grizzlies for they annual visit to the Fieldhouse with their opening night starting lineup healthy for just the third time this season.
If all finish the game, it will be just the second game for that feat since Myles Turner was hurt early in the game the last time all started. Bench production has been huge for the Pacers of late as they have managed to keep winning more than they’ve lost despite the crowded injury list.
Memphis is young, led by rookie Ja Morant and forward (local legend) Jaren Jackson Jr., while getting some veteran stability from Jae Crowder and Jonas Valanciunas. But their reserve group is young and with a lot of new faces this year, which should offer the Pacers an advantage if the bench can maintain their recent level of play.
