Charlotte Hornets @ Indiana Pacers
The Pacers are out for a bounceback win, after dropping seven of their past nine games.
Eddie Gill says the #Pacers, who have lost seven of their last nine, need to “come out there with great aggression, great pride” as they look to get back on track against the #Hornets tonight.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Toronto Raptors
The two best teams in the East collide in a potential playoff matchup!
The Raptors have won 17 of 18 games, with 12 coming against teams with losing records. Can they flex their championship muscles against the league-leading Bucks?
With a win over Milwaukee tonight, the Raptors would move to .500 against the East’s top-6 teams. After starting the season 2-7 vs that group, they’ve won 4 straight (3 of them vs Indiana).
The Bucks are 6-4 vs the East’s top-6, 43-4 vs everybody else.

Boston Celtics @ Portland Trail Blazers
Kemba Walker will miss his third-straight game with a kneee inkury, while the Blazers are still without Damian Lillard.
Kemba Walker remains out with a sore left knee for the Celtics’ visit to Portland tomorrow. No Dame Lillard in that game either. Rob Williams remains out.
