Pacers Magic Number Is "2"

Last updated on Thursday, April 19, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Pacers close out the regular season with a four-game homestand starting tonight when the Milwaukee Bucks invade Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Blue-and-Gold closed out the road portion of the schedule with a 102-97 win in Philadelphia on Tuesday night as Indiana is in the midst of their second six-game winning streak of the season.

The Pacers' magic number for clinching the number-three seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs is down to two.

The Bucks are fighting with the 76ers for the eighth and final berth in the East. The Bucks are coming off a 121-112 loss in Washington last night that put them two and-a-half games behind Philly. They have lost four of their last five down the stretch, including a 105-99 setback to Indiana last Saturday night in Milwaukee.

The Pacers are going for a sweep of their three-game season series with the Bucks.
