Pacers To Face Red Hot Lakers Squad

Last updated on Monday, December 1, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers return to action on Tuesday night when they face the red-hot Los Angeles Lakers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers lost Friday night at home to Charlotte in overtime before falling in Orlando on Saturday night to drop to 6-and-10. Indiana has lost two-straight and seven of their last nine games.

The Lakers beat Toronto last night to improve to 14-and-1 and run their winning streak to seven games.

Tuesday's game is the first of a back-to-back for the Pacers against last season's NBA finalists. They are in Boston to face the champion Celtics on Wednesday.

The Celtics are 16-and-2 with a game tonight against Orlando in Boston.

In a little over a month of the regular season, this will be the sixth time the Pacers have had to play games on back-to-back nights.
