The Indiana Pacers (33-43) finish up their four-game season series against the Milwaukee Bucks (54-21) on Wednesday night at the Fieldhouse.

Who will play and how they will play remain the constant questions for the Pacers as they play out the remainder of the regular season. With a young lineup expected to start sans Tyrese Haliburton against the best team in the league that appears top heavy in the rotation and motivated to maintain that top spot, this game appears more about development for the Pacers, as opposed to hunting for another win.

Of course, this similar situation was in play recently in Milwaukee and Andrew Nembhard spearheaded an unlikely comeback win for the Pacers which included a 49-point third quarter and 84-point second half. That was likely the last gasp of good air for the Pacers as they have since slid out of play-in contention with six games to go.
