Struggling Pacers Host Rookie Phenom Brandon Jennings And Bucks Tonight

Last updated on Monday, December 21, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are at home tonight to face the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Pacers are coming off back-to-back road losses at Memphis on Friday night and at San Antonio on Saturday.

Indiana had its chances in its 100-99 loss to the Spurs, eventually losing on a rebound dunk by Tim Duncan with just under five seconds remaining.

TJ Ford's last second shot bounced off the rim as the Pacers fell to 9-16.

The bucks are coming off a one-point loss of their own on Saturday night as Tyreke Evans hit a reverse layup in the final second to give Sacramento a 96-95 win in Milwaukee.

The Bucks are 11-14, which is good enough for second place in the central division.

The Pacers have won nine in a row against Milwaukee at Conseco Fieldhouse.

They split their four games last season with each team winning both games on their home court.

Tonight's game is the first of a back-to-back for the blue-and-gold.

The Pacers will head on to Boston to face the Celtics on Tuesday night.
