The Pacers return to action after a night they’d like to forget.

The Pacers welcome Nate McMillan and his Atlanta Hawks to the Fieldhouse on Thursday night.

Both teams played on Wednesday with drastically different results. The Hawks destroyed a strong Suns team (albeit one playing on an OT back-to-back), 135-103 as they gear up for the playoffs while working Trae Young back in the mix.

The Pacers? Well, not so good. Bad loss to the Kings. Bad look on the sidelines with now suspended coach Grag Foster getting heated with now fined Goga Bitadze. According to reports, the group was hashing things out until 1 a.m., but at least they have the 8 p.m. tip again to get an extra hour of rest.

The teams split their prior two games this season with the Hawks winning the latest matchup by running past the Pacers, 129-117 in mid-April.

We are officially done trying to predict what type of team and effort the Pacers will roll out, so sit back and enjoy.
