Hibbert Expected To Play As Pacers Travel To Milwaukee

Last updated on Tuesday, December 18, 2012

(Milwaukee, WI) - The Indiana Pacers will try and maintain their longest winning streak of the season when they visit the 12-10 Milwaukee Bucks tonight at Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

The Pacers have won three consecutive games dating back to last Wednesday and most recently scored a double-digit win at Detroit Saturday night.

Roy Hibbert is expected to play in Milwaukee after suffering a deep thigh bruise in the first half against the Pistons.

The Pacers top rebounder played his best all-around game of-the-season Friday night against the Philadelphia 76rs in scoring 19 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

The Bucks took the last meeting between the two teams, a 99-85 win over Indiana on November 14th in Milwaukee that snapped a five game losing streak to the blue-and-gold.

The Pacers are 13-11 and have won five of their last seven road games after a dismal start to the season away from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Tipoff between the Pacers and Bucks tonight is at 8:00.
