Pacers prepare for critical week

David West

The playoff push is in full swing for the Pacers who are battling it out with the Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics and the Charlotte Hornets for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.  This will be a critical week as the Pacers play Brooklyn on Tuesday and Boston on Wednesday.

“The next four games, they’re all head to head,” said Pacers head coach Frank Vogel.  “It’s like March Madness… You have to win all these games, and a lot will be decided with these head to heads.”

“Every game matters,” said Pacers guard George Hill.  “Either we win the game or we go home April 15, so that’s the urgency we have to play with.”

Paul George has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game.  Rodney Stuckey is questionable with a sore wrist. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
