The Pacers find some warms in San Antonio where they will play the Spurs for the first time this season.

The Pacers (36-24) complete the second leg of their current disjointed road trip when they play the Spurs (25-33) at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

The Pacers are still trying to find their stride after the All-Star break while incorporating Victor Oladipo but they are moving in the right direction having won three in a row. However, Vic has been ruled out of this one to rest his knee.

Every road game is tough regardless of the circumstances, but the Pacers appear to be catching a break with LaMarcus Aldridge and Jakob Poeltl not expected to play. While the Pacers will have to adjust to playing a smaller Spurs lineup, taking advantage of the situation with Domas Sabonis and Myles Turner should be Plan A.

The Spurs will likely start local legend and former Indiana Mr. Basketball, Trey Lyles at center which, despite his height, is not his normal position. Lyles can step out and shoot the three, so the Spurs will no doubt try to increase the pace and spread the floor. It will be on the Pacers to dictate how the game is played in order to secure that fourth consecutive win.
