The Brooklyn Nets hit the road on Saturday night as they face the Indiana Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse hoping to upset the Eastern Conference leaders.
Indiana will be aiming for a four-game season sweep of their Conference rivals, whilst also improving on their 35-10 record so far this season.
Coach Frank Vogel was boosted by the news that the franchise had added center Andrew Bynum on Saturday, although the headlines have generally been dominated by Lance Stephenson, who voiced his displeasure after being snubbed for the All-Star game.
Both Roy Hibbert and Paul George were dominant the last time these two met, but the Pacers were undone by the Phoenix Suns last time out as they failed to cope with the speed and scoring of the likes of Goran Dragic.
However, George had 24 points in the 96-91 win over the Nets back in November, while he and Stephenson finished with 26 points apiece in a 103-86 win in December.
Considering the match-ups, it would suggest that the Pacers should be confident of adding another notch to the win column, particularly now that they return to their home court.
Meanwhile, the Nets enjoyed a productive January to move to 20-24 for the season, but they have now dropped their last two games against the Toronto Raptors and Oklahoma City Thunder respectively.
Still expected to make the post-season, coach Jason Kidd will be fully aware of the requirement to show that his team can be competitive against the top teams in the East.
