(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back home this evening following their longest road trip of the season as the pacers host the Golden State Warriors at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers lost four of five on their west coast road trip and have dropped nine of eleven overall to fall to 17-and-22.

The latest setback for the blue-and-gold was a 106-101 loss to the Warriors Sunday night in Oakland. Golden State has won three in a row after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-98 last night in Minneapolis.

Sunday night's loss marked the third time on the trip and the ninth time this season that Indiana built a double-digit lead only to lose the game.

Head Coach Jim O'Brien is happy with the team's progress since he changed the starting lineup three games ago at phoenix. The Pacers have gone with a smaller, quicker lineup that includes Jermaine O'Neal at center, Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy at forward and Kareem Rush and Jamaal Tinsley at guard.

O'Neal, Tinsley and guard Travis Diener sat out Tuesday's practice with injuries. All three are listed as day-to-day.

David Harrison, who still has three games remaining on his league-imposed suspension, is working out separately from the team. Harrison is eligible to practice with the team, but O'Brien does not want Harrison to take practice reps away from those who will be playing.
