(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Pacers face must-wins the rest of the season if they are to prevent their streak of missing the playoffs from increasing to three seasons.
Of all of those games remaining in the regular season, tonight's may be the most important as the Chicago Bulls come to Conseco Fieldhouse.
The Bulls are 36-39 and currently hold down the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth. The Pacers are 31-43 and are four and a half games behind the Bulls in eleventh place.
Tonight's game comes just three days after the Bulls beat Indiana 112-106 at the United Center.
The Pacers gained a game on Chicago on Sunday with their win over Washington and the Bulls' overtime loss in Toronto.
