Pacers Look To End Road Losing Streak With Win Over Bobcats

Last updated on Tuesday, January 15, 2013

(Charlotte, NC) - The Indiana Pacers can end a three game road skid by defeating the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte tonight.

The Pacers top ranked defense was overrun in the fourth quarter by the Brooklyn Nets Sunday, losing at Barclays Center 97-86.

Paul George scored 15 points against Brooklyn after missing Saturday night's home contest against the Bobcats with the flu.

David West stepped-in during Saturday's 96-88 win over Charlotte by netting his first career triple double that included 14 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists.

Lance Stephenson is questionable for tonight's game after leaving Sunday's contest against the Nets with a "really bad toe nail."

Stephenson is averaging 19 points a game against Charlotte and has found increased minutes in the starting lineup with the absence of Granger.

The Bobcats are 9-28 on the season and have lost four straight games, including Monday's 100-89 defeat in Boston.

Tipoff tonight is at 7:00.
