(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back in action tonight as they host the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat.
The Pacers dropped both games of their two-game Texas road trip earlier this week and have lost 13 of their last 14.
Despite their recent struggles, Indiana remains firmly in the playoff hunt. They enter tonight's game trailing Orlando by one percentage point for the eighth and final playoff berth in the East.
New Jersey stands seventh, a half-game in front of the Pacers and Magic. Miami is sixth in the East. The Heat have won ten of their last eleven.
