Where in the world will the Milwaukee Bucks play the Indiana Pacers next? First Indianapolis, then Las Vegas, and now back home in Wisconsin, the season series between these two teams has been in Indiana’s favor so far, but the Bucks have a chance to set the record straight tonight.

In a matchup between two top-five offenses (and two bottom-10 defenses), these games have been about as all-gas, no-brakes as it gets in the NBA. Wondering whether the scoring will flow isn’t the matter up for debate tonight. It is about which team can either A) Execute at a more efficient level, or B) Which defense can scrape together just enough to influence the final score in a meaningful way. Should be entertaining no matter the result!

There have been no injury updates for either team since this morning: Jae Crowder, Pat Connaughton, and Chris Livingston are out for Milwaukee while Jalen Smith and Andrew Nembhard are out for Indiana.

Check out the full preview here, and follow along below and on Twitter. As always, go Bucks!
