The Pacers look to bounce back from a pair of losses in their last two outings when they host the Knicks.

NBA: New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers and Knicks complete their regular season series on Tuesday night at BLF, as the Pacers try to sweep the series.

The Pacers need a win, any win, even a win over the Knicks, the team with the worst record in the league, will help the Pacers move past a pair of tough outings in their last two games while prepping for more troubled waters ahead on the schedule.

The good news is that Victor Oladipo took his first public steps earlier in the day at one point appeared to be the only player on the injury list after several key players have cycled on and off, missing games over the past few weeks. Good health is a good start to getting back to playing good basketball. But alas, Tyreke Evans has been ruled out for personal reason and that’s not good. He was seen leaving the locker room prior to the game, but then went to the practice court. Depending on how the game plays out, that should open at least a few minutes for Aaron Holiday.

Thankfully, the Knicks are in town.
