The Pacers are heading home after four straight on the road. They probably will get no sympathy from the Blazers, which will play their seventh straight on the road this evening in The Fieldhouse.
While this appears to be the matchup of two mediocre teams, it should be fun. George Hill vs. Damian Lillard. David West vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. Paul George vs. Nic Batum. Terrible bench vs. more terrible bench.
This preview is going up minutes before tip, but me and Sean Highkin of Portland Roundball Society took the time today to discuss the current states of the two teams on a podcast. It’s more about the long-term future of the players and franchises involved than about tonight’s contest specifically, so be sure to give it a listen even if you read this after the game.
