Struggling Pacers Squad Host Pistons Tuesday Night

Last updated on Monday, January 28, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers open a four-game homestand tomorrow night when they welcome the Detroit Pistons to Conseco Fieldhouse. They are 0-and-2 against Detroit this season.

The Pacers are coming off a four-game road trip which saw the blue-and-gold drop their final three games, including a 98-96 loss Saturday afternoon in Miami. The Heat came back from a nine-point deficit at halftime to pull out the win and snap a 15-game losing streak.

Indiana is 19-and-26 and has lost 13 of their last 17 games. Despite the struggles, the Pacers are still in the lead for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.

New Jersey's loss at Minnesota last night dropped the nets a half-game behind the blue-and-gold in the playoff race with Chicago, Milwaukee, Charlotte and Philadelphia within two games of Indiana.
