NBA Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, November 27th (All times Eastern)

Indiana Pacers (13-1) at Charlotte Bobcats (7-8), 7 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Indiana Pacers aim for their 14th win of the season when they pay a visit to the Charlotte Bobcats Wednesday night.

The Pacers are 13-1 for the first time in franchise history and have won four in a row, including Monday's 98-84 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Paul George and George Hill netted 26 points apiece for the Pacers, who are 8-0 at home and were able to slow down Wolves star Kevin Love.

"It was our defense," Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said. "We limited them to very few second shots and were more aggressive to score."

Love had 20 points and 17 rebounds for the Timberwolves.

Lance Stephenson had 11 points and eight rebounds for Indiana. George is nine points away from reaching 3,000 for his career.

The Pacers, who have won seven games by 10 or more points, have won two in a row on the road and are 5-1 as the visitor.

Charlotte will resume a three-game homestand and dropped a 96-86 decision to the Boston Celtics Monday night.

Kemba Walker scored 28 points and Gerald Henderson added 20 for the Bobcats, who have lost four of their last six games. Al Jefferson scored 14 points in a losing effort. Walker has scored 20-plus points in six games.

The Bobcats are 3-5 at home and will also host Milwaukee on the homestand.

Indiana won three of four meetings with Charlotte last season and has won 13 of the last 15 meetings between the teams.
