(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back home after going winless on their three-game road trip.
The blue-and-gold host the struggling Seattle Supersonics on Tuesday night.
The Pacers are 24-and-39 following losses at Houston, San Antonio and Cleveland last week. They are tied with Charlotte for eleventh place in the Eastern Conference, two and-a-half games behind eighth-place Atlanta for the final playoff berth.
The Hawks hold a half-game lead over New Jersey in the race for the final spot in the playoffs. Chicago is a game and-a-half behind Atlanta in tenth with the Pacers and Bobcats a game behind the Bulls.
The Sonics own the fourth-worst record in the NBA at 16-and-47. Seattle has lost their last four games, the latest coming Sunday afternoon at Toronto.
