Pacers Road Trip Heads To Portland

Last updated on Wednesday, January 23, 2013

(Portland, OR) - The Indiana Pacers continue their Western Conference road trip tonight when they take on the Slumping Portland Trailblazers at Rose Garden in Portland.

The Pacers opened the four game road stretch by escaping Memphis with an 82-81 win over the Grizzlies Monday afternoon, and can at least tie their subpar 10-13 road mark by going perfect over the next six days.

Indiana is tied with the Miami Heat for the best home record in the Eastern Conference at 16-3, but had lost four of their last five games away from Bankers Life Fieldhouse before Monday's win against the Grizzlies.

The Trailblazers are 20-21 on the season and have lost six straight games, including four in a row at home, but have been competitive in losing all six games by a combined 28 points.

Indiana, 26-16 on the season, defeated Portland at the Fieldhouse on December 5th, 99-92, and can sweep the Trailblazers for the first time since 2007 with a win tonight. Tipoff is at 10:00.
