(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to snap their four-game losing streak this evening when they welcome the Portland Trail Blazers to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Pacers are 23-and-16 and have dropped into a tie with Atlanta for the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference. The latest setback for the blue-and-gold was a 107-94 loss Sunday night in Orlando.
The Blazers enter tonight's game at 20-and-21 and are tenth in the West. Portland has lost five of its last seven but is coming off a 110-99 win at Washington last Saturday.
The Blazers are led by all-star forward Lamarcus Aldridge, who is averaging just under 22 points and eight-point-two rebounds per game this season. Guards Nicolas Batum and Jamal Crawford have also had their moments this season.
Danny Granger continues to lead the Pacers in scoring at 18.1 points per game. Guard George Hill could return to the Indiana lineup tonight. Hill missed the losses in Orlando and Miami after spraining his left shoulder in practice last week.
