The Pacers are looking for wins in all the wrong places as they wrap up their roadie against the Warriors on Thursday night.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers complete their four-game road trip at Oracle Arena on Thursday night where they face the defending champs before heading home.

The Warriors were the kindest of hosts last season when they sat their four best players for the Pacers visit, which played a part in the Pacers winning and sweeping the Warriors last year.

No such luck this season, as the Warriors already have a 132-100 win at the Fieldhouse in the Pacers second game after losing Victor Oladipo. While the Dubs will be ready to roll, this Pacers remain short-handed, not only without VO, but also starting point guard, Darren Collison.

Golden State is just 5-5 in their last ten games as they sputter along (albeit at a high level) waiting for the playoffs to kick in to defend their title.

The Pacers will also be short-handed on the bench as Nate McMillan will miss the game due to a death in the family. Dan Burke will move over to the top chair for the night.
