The Indiana Pacers are playing a team that they really don't like in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The Bucks and the Pacers have had a few spats this year over the course of their five meetings. There has been a lot of trash talk thrown by both sides.

One player specifically on the Bucks was not happy the last time the Pacers beat them. Malik Beasley, who no longer starts for Milwaukee, was so distraught that he decided to talk some trash about the Pacers after his team had lost to them for the fourth time in five tries.

"It's not going to be pretty for them." That was Beasley's comment about the Pacers after the Bucks lost to Indiana again. When asked about those comments a number of months later now that the two teams will be facing off in the playoffs, Beasley isn't backing down.

Malik Beasley keeps talking trash to the Pacers

Take a look at Beasley's comments below.

Beasley is just adding fuel to the fire for the Pacers. Tyrese Haliburton is already super motivated to take down his hometown team and the rest of the team wants to back him up. They all are motivated to win for Oscar Tshiebwe after ball-gate as well. That made the entire team mad.

With Beasley's past comments, ball-gate, and the underdog mentality that the Indiana Pacers have, it should be a good series. I think the Pacers will come out with a lot of fire and a lot of motivation to win this series and play well early, especially if Giannis misses the beginning of the series.

Indiana and Milwaukee will play the first game of their series on Sunday. It's a game that will be played in Milwaukee and it's one that the Pacers have to win if Giannis isn't able to suit up.
