MILWAUKEE BUCKS (11-45) AT INDIANA PACERS (43-13), 7 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - It's the NBA's best versus the NBA's worst on Thursday night as the Indiana Pacers welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to Banker's Life Fieldhouse.
The Pacers own the league's best record at 43-13, while the Bucks have been a disaster this season, possessing the worst mark at 11-45. Indiana has the best home record at 27-3, while Milwaukee is just 5-22 as the visitor, second-worst in the league behind only the Orlando Magic.
The Pacers have won two straight overall, including a road victory over these same Bucks on Saturday. Indiana knocked off the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday thanks to a new face.
Evan Turner made his Pacers debut after a trade deadline deal brought him over from Philadelphia and he chipped in 13 points off the bench in the victory.
"He knows how to make the right basketball play. He's not out there forcing action," Indiana head coach Frank Vogel said of Turner.
