(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season tonight when they host the Boston Celtics.
The Pacers have lost four games in a row and are coming off a three-game road trip that saw them lose at Charlotte, Houston and Dallas.
Despite the skid, the Pacers still own the best record in the East at 46 and 17 and hold a one-game lead over Miami for the conference lead.
The Heat snapped a three-game losing streak of their own with a win over the Wizards at home on Monday night. The Celtics have won two straight for first-year head coach Brad Stevens. The former Butler coach has gone 22-and-41 with Boston this season as the Celtics are in twelfth place in the East.
An Indiana win tonight will give the Pacers a sweep of the four-game season series.
Tonight's game will mark the Blue-and-Gold's lone contest at Bankers Life Fieldhouse during a stretch where they are playing five of six games on the road. They will play in Philadelphia on Friday night and head to Detroit for a Saturday night game with the Pistons.
