(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks have struggled through the early part of the season without their best players and will be shorthanded again when the two teams meet tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Pacers have stumbled to a 3-and-6 record without perennial scoring leader Danny Granger and have labored to maintain possession of the ball in his absence.
5-and-4 Dallas is playing without 2007 MVP Dirk Nowitzki, who continues to heal slowly from a knee surgery in mid-October that generally takes three-to-six weeks to recover from.
Tipoff in Downtown Indianapolis is at 7:00.
