Clippers-Pacers Preview By JORDAN GARRETSON Posted Feb 27 2013 5:22PM Two teams that have been dominant lately will meet Thursday as the Indiana Pacers host the Los Angeles Clippers. But with the Clippers' front line wreaking havoc on opponents, the Pacers - playing without their starting center - could be in trouble. Indiana has won 10 of 12, including the past five by an average of 23.8 points, while Los Angeles has won six of seven with the victories coming by 16.7 points. A sixth straight win for the Pacers (36-21) would be a season best, but they will be without Roy Hibbert, who was....

If we can beat the Grizzlies in Memphis, there's no reason we can't beat the Pacers in Indiana! Of course, we HAVE to be on our game.

With Hibbert out, there's no reason why Blake and DJ can't pummel these guys down low. Denver is creeping up on us for playoff position.

Denver is not creeping up. It's Memphis that is right behind us. They have won 8 straight!

Fox sports Midwest broadcasts Pacers games now, so here is St. Louis we get to see this game live on TV. Crappy part being that Mike and Ralph won't be doing play by play. oh well.

We should be able to beat up on the Pacers, they are playing abnormally well, and I believe they will come back to earth a little tonight. The Pacers play a lot of mid range and down low basketball, which happens to play into our defensive strengths. This is going to be a win for the clips, mark it down.

Does the NBA or TNT/ESPN not have flex scheduling?

I'm sure majority of NBA fans in general would rather see the Clippers/Pacers game instead of the 76ERS/Bulls game.

Their is no intrigue or headlines in that game.

The PACERS are HOT right now and the Clippers are riding a win streak. Just makes more sense for it to be nationally televised.

With Hibbert out, there's no excuse for our bigs not to go off tonight. We should win big if both Blake and DJ have great games tonight.

If our defense and our physical play show up in the beging of the gm and Paul takes over the tempo of the gm we will win !! Lets shut up the media and destroy them !!!!!!

Still going to be a tough game the way Indy has been playing lately. No Hibbert is a huge plus but still doesn't make this a cake walk.

Also, it would be nice if Blake could rediscover whatever magic caused him to drop 47 and 14 on the Pacers in his rookie year.

This. It will be a very tough game. Tough match ups on both sides. I think we need to speed the game up and get out in transition to pull out the win. If we get bogged down in a half court game against the Pacer defense, I'm not sure we can pull out the W.

But, honestly, I'm almost more concerned about the game against Cleveland, since the Cavs are one of those teams that just seems to have our number, regardless of who's playing.

Luckily Memphis plays at Miami tomorrow. The Heat better not crumble like they did in the Finals two years ago.

Tough tough game,,,not setting my expectations too high,,,I know we can beat these guys but our guys have to play that flawless ball we know they can play if they put their minds to it.

Don't count out the Nuggets. They're prone to go on good stretches and they have a better overall team than the Grizzlies.

We need to attack attack attack and go at their bigs because no Hibbert. Also we should try some zone again because it seemed to work against the bobcats.

Gotta contain George Hill. He can light it up from the 3pt line.

The fact that we're dominating the paint is encouraging, since the threes will have to start falling eventually in addition to that, and we're due for a big run when that happens.

Those 2 George Hill jumpers were heartbreakers. He made those shots out of broken plays.

We should have a commanding lead, but instead it's tied largely due to the SEVEN bricks they've chucked up from three point land. SMH.

Don't worry, I'm sure Crawford will make a couple of 3s soon.
