The Pacers (20-9) take a swing at the top team in the East when they visit the Bucks (26-4) on Sunday evening.

Milwaukee won the first meeting at the Fieldhouse, 102-83 rolling past the short-handed Pacers who were missing Malcolm Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb. This time around the Pacers are dealing with a couple of dinged up players including Lamb and Domas Sabonis who are both questionable.

More important injury news to monitor is on the Bucks’ side where league MVP front runner, Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing through a sore back while all of the Bucks are playing on a back-to-back after rolling past the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately, the Knicks didn’t stress the Bucks too much, but Giannis did play 26 minutes, logging a casual triple-double in the win.

While the Bucks did their damage in NYC the Pacers were in Milwaukee, so the blue and gold should have a rest advantage. We’ll see if that along with some quality execution is enough to get past the Bucks on their home floor.
