Indiana (31-7) currently owns the best record in the league, which includes a 20-1 mark at home. The Pacers are having little trouble in Indiana of late, outscoring visitors by an average of 21.3 points during the win streak. "We have set a goal, and we want to be the No. 1 seed (in the East)," said guard Lance Stephenson. "Every night I try to bring something to the table." Stephenson did just that Thursday with a career-high 28 points, while Paul George added 25 with seven rebounds in a 117-89 thrashing of New York that improved the Pacers to 3-0 on....

it almost seems as if the loss of Redick was a bigger detriment than losing Paul. And as you start to examine the games you see why. Griffin and Collison can both distribute the ball very well and combined its seems as if their passing ability can equal what Paul does alone. Shooting, however, is a different story because no one can do what Redick does. Crawford can carry a team offensively but it takes him many shots to do it and Dudley can shoot the three at high percentage but rarely shoots. You can see how much Redick does for this team, and frankly I would not be surprised if we come out of Indy with a win.

Clippers-Pacers Preview By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO Posted Jan 18 2014 1:32AM Indiana's stellar play at home has done more than put the Pacers atop the Eastern Conference. It's had them hovering around the top of the entire NBA all season. Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers, meanwhile, have been enjoying a strong stretch of their own since Chris Paul went down with an injury. The Pacers, who have lost only once at home, seek their ninth straight win at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday as they close the season series with the surging Clippers. Indiana (31-7) currently owns the best record in the league, which includes....

The Pacers still turn the ball over which allows the Clips to thrive. "- The Clippers are now 6-1 without superstar Chris Paul. Since Paul got injured, Darren Collison has filled the void valiantly, exactly like....

Lance Stephenson is like 2 Face. Some nights he's LeBron James and others he's J.R. Smith.

Please Lance, be J.R. Smith tonight.

Indiana is due to lose at home, lol. Why not this game? It would be super awesome to win against the mighty Indiana Pacers. Clippers can capitalize on the Pacers' turnovers. This looks to be a very tough game, but I hope the Clips can pull out a win somehow.

Pacers / Clippers are around the same level if you only compare perimeter players. It all depends on whether Blake / DJ can outplay Hibbert, West, Scola.

We definitely can win tonight. On the "road trip" thread I was thinking 6-1 with our only loss being against George and the pacers depending on how we started the road trip....I really liked what I saw last night. We need Blake to show up tonight because he was quiet last time we played them and we just need to contain George. He's a pure scorer, we can't stop him but we can slow him down. As for lance Stephenson I agree with CapsNClips... whether we get lebron or smith tonight though he is EXTREMELY turnover prone.

I'm excited. ...I have to work tonight but I will definitely be ' hardly working ' instead of a hard worker tonight haha I work at Cicispizza so I will have the game on for sure! LETS GO CLIPS!!!!!!

Slim chance (Clippers +9) we win tonight and if that's the case hope it's gets out of hand early so we can rest the starters. Sorta a back handed Pop move. Wink

Yesterdays game was a mere warmup drill compared to what is to come today, Indiana starters are great at all positions so we have to play a perfect game to pull this one out, leggo clips!

I have a great feeling Clippers come on top. I predict someone steps up big time. Maybe Hedo gives Scola a fit and Hedo scores about 10-12. Someone steps up big tonight and the Clippers win

Second night of a back to back against a team 20-1 at home, so no big deal if we lose, but will be big accomplishment if we can gut out a win.

When did the rules change that when hitting someone in the jaw nets you a free throw

NO. No. It is not you. I see the same thing. But as we know, we are the Clippers. A jaw gets you two freebies, and a touch foul gets you an and-1.

Pacers get away with a lot of stuff. Even their bookkeepers give them stuff. No Way Hibbert has blocked 5 shots in one quarter. If they gave him a block instead of a steal on....

how dumb can we be to think you going to do some damn finger rolls in the lane on Hibbert, it's so freaking stupid, atleast just try to get it on the backboard real fast and get the goal tend. Freaking tell these guys something coaches

Jamal should have moved to open space for Collison

DJ is guarding Hibbert well, but that was kind of unlucky
