Pacers Host Pistons Wednesday Night

Last updated on Wednesday, January 14, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are home for the first time in eleven days as they welcome the Detroit Pistons to Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers' longest road trip of the season ended with a 120-113 setback at Utah Monday night as they went 1-and-4 out west and have lost three in a row.

It is the back end of a back-to-back for the Pistons, who are coming off an 80-78 loss at home to the Charlotte Bobcats last night. Raymond Felton hit a last-second shot to send Detroit to its second loss in three games. The Pistons were led in scoring by Rodney Stuckey's 22 points.

Stuckey's emergence at the point made Chauncey Billups expendable and Detroit traded Billups to Denver early in the season for Allen Iverson.

Last night's game also marked Richard Hamilton's return to the Pistons' lineup. Hamilton missed eight games with a groin injury.

Tonight's game is the third this season between Detroit and Indiana with the Pistons sweeping the two previous games at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Tune in to all of the action starting at 6:30pm this Wednesday night on 1340 AM WBIW.
