4. The second night of a back-to-back against Milwaukee, 11/9

The Pacers will be seeing some familiar faces in another challenging situation at the beginning of November. While they will be at home, they will be playing the Bucks in the second night of a back to back with the Utah Jazz the night before.

The Pacers have not traditionally fared well against the Bucks in the last couple of years (no one has really), and so they will need every advantage they can get when playing a team that won a championship in the near past.

The Bucks are an experienced team that have held their core together well for many years now, so if you are penciling in games that may be likely losses, this would certainly come to mind. However, this Pacers team is better than many realize and so try not to count them out of any games when Haliburton is on the court making magic happen.
