The Pacers begin a brutal roadie in Denver on Saturday night.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Indiana Pacers Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers tip off their four-game road trip against Western Conference teams in Denver where they will face the Nuggets for the first time this season.

The Nuggs will start the game in second place in the West, one games behind conference leader, Golden State. With Nikola Jokic utilizing his size and immense talent to lead the way, Denver has been a rough matchup for the Pacers in recent seasons. Last year the teams split two close games with the Pacers winning at BLF in overtime thanks to 47 points by Victor Oladipo.

Tonight the Pacers will get no points from Dipo but will have to lean on their defense and diverse offensive options to find some thing that works.

Denver starts a lineup with local legend from HSE, Gary Harris at guard. Tech’s Trey Lyles is dealing with a left hammy issue and is questionable at best.
