(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The Indiana Pacers have one more day to prepare for Saturday night's game with the Sacramento Kings.
The game is the fourth of a five-game west coast road trip for the Pacers, who have dropped the first three games of the trip. The blue-and-gold have lost eight of nine overall to fall to 16-and-21, moving five games under .500 for the first time this season.
The Pacers lost a 16-point lead in the third quarter and missed their final eleven shot from the field in regulation as they were dropped by the Phoenix Suns in overtime on Wednesday night.
The Kings improved to 14-and-20 with a win late last night against Memphis.
The Pacers hope to have center Jermaine O'Neal back in the lineup in Sacramento. O'Neal missed Wednesday night's loss with soreness in his left knee.
Tomorrow's game is the first of two between Indiana and the Kings this season. The rematch will be on Saturday, January 19th at Conseco Fieldhouse.
