The Pacers return home to sneak in a game against the Pistons before heading back out on the road.
Normally playing at Bankers Life Fieldhouse would be welcomed, but the Pacers are currently riding a six-game losing streak at BLF which takes us back to the mid-’80s to match. No one wants to be reminded of the mid-’80s Pacers. The last win was over Memphis on Feb. 2.
The Pistons appear to be a good team to get right against at home. After moving some vets, Detroit appears fine with playing toward future seasons but they do have the ability to rise up an get wins as they have three times in their last 10 games with Jerami Grant showing the ability to put up big games.
The Pacers may be short-handed again with Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner still questionable. Both missed the massacre in Milwaukee on Monday.
We often mention the @pacers streak of 31 straight seasons with a winning record at home. They will need to finish 12-5 @thefieldhouse to extend the streak. Need to get one tonight vs @DetroitPistons.— Jeremiah Johnson (@JJFSINDIANA) March 24, 2021
