Pacers Face Grizzlies At Fieldhouse

Last updated on Wednesday, October 17, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers put a perfect preseason record on the line tonight when they welcome the Memphis Grizzlies to Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers improved to 3-and-0 in exhibitions with a 117-104 win at New Orleans Monday night.

Starting point guard Jamaal Tinsley was excused from practice on Tuesday to attend a funeral but is expected to be back for tonight's game. Marquis Daniels is also expected to play tonight after missing Monday's game against the hornets with a bruised knee.

The Grizzlies are 2-and-1 on the preseason, splitting a pair of exhibitions in Spain before beating Minnesota on Monday night.

The Timberwolves are the Pacers' next opponent as Indiana wraps up the home portion of its preseason schedule on Friday night.

Tonight's game begins a stretch of three games in four nights for the Pacers and Head Coach Jim O'Brien says there is a chance that he may rotate his lineups and keep key players out of some of the games to give them a rest.
