The Pacers wrap up their season series with the Pistons on Saturday night looking for a win to sweep the three-game series for the year.
Nothing is easy for the Pacers at this point with and extended injury list that has their front court in shambles. The team picked up G-League big man Amida Brimah on Friday but at this point it looks like JaKarr Sampson and Oshae Brissett will have to do the heavy lifting up front against a Pistons team that arguably has too much front court depth in the playing rotation.
This sets up for a contrast in styles at the Fieldhouse as the Pacers will have to keep the pace flowing fast to minimize the size disadvantage.
