They do have a huge bout of Stomach Flu on their team that may cause them to forfeit.

...and your shoes are untied.

I do know Reggie has been working out hard and just bought a house in Carmel next to Mike Ditka.

No, seriously.
"Andrew Bogut missed Friday's shootaround due to illness and was described by coach Scott Skiles as "probably doubtful" for tonight's game"

The Pacers have had more than their share of luck this season.

Bogut had just started playing very well the past few games.

When you look at the pacers lack of injuries - the fewest for a Pacers team since the 90's and how many times they have played teams without one of their top players it is really weird.

If the pacers don't make the playoffs they should be ashamed. Plus 36 or 37 wins at the most will get the pacers in

Now Roy better take advantage of their lack of backup centers.

His defense is what made them a solid contender last season.

He's not much of a scorer and I don't think he's going to do much against Tyler and Josh.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. He has a motor that rivals Tyler's and he has as much athleticism as Josh. He won't make up what they lose with Bogut being out but the Pacers can't take this game lightly just because he's out of the lineup.

This is very good for the pacers but bad for roy. I think he needed a good showing against bogut before the playoffs to keep gaining steam.

The X factor in this game will be Drew Gooden. He's on a tear right now and if he's hitting his shots, the Bucks will be harder to put away.

The Indiana Pacers continue to cling to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Milwaukee Bucks aren’t too far behind and seem to be getting healthy at just the right time.

The Pacers will try to hand a potentially crushing blow to the Bucks’ playoff hopes when the teams close out their season series Friday night in Indianapolis.

Indiana (34-42) defeated Detroit 111-101 on Wednesday night - its second win in a row and fourth in six games - to remain one game ahead of Charlotte and three in front of 10th-place Milwaukee (30-44) in the East.

A Pacers victory Friday would not only put the Bucks four games back in the standings, it would also pull Indiana to within three games of seventh-place New York.

“We really have an opportunity to knock Milwaukee out,” forward Danny Granger(notes) said. “That will be one less team to worry about even though Charlotte’s right behind us still.”

“(Seventh place) is not out of reach yet. We just have to pray the Knicks keep losing. … We have six games left now so we’ll see where it goes.”

Milwaukee took six straight from the Pacers, holding them to an average of 91.8 points, before falling 103-97 on Feb. 12 as Granger scored 30.

Bucks center Andrew Bogut(notes), averaging 17.3 points and 11.3 rebounds in his last 15 meetings with Indiana, knows another loss could be devastating.

“This is probably do or die for us,” Bogut said. “This game is everything for us and probably everything for them, too.”

Milwaukee won 104-98 in Toronto on Wednesday night to avoid a third consecutive defeat as guard Brandon Jennings(notes) continued his impressive play with 25 points.

Forward Drew Gooden(notes) matched a season high with 22 points and also had 11 rebounds off the bench in his second game back since missing 32 with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

“Drew is a big part of this team,” said Jennings, averaging 25.3 points in his last four games - 9.2 more than his season mark. “He’s a great rebounder and he’s a great screen-and-pop shooter. When he’s out there making shots, it opens up the offense a lot.”

Former All-Star Michael Redd(notes) scored five points Wednesday in his second game of 2010-11. Redd missed the last 14 months recovering from a second major knee surgery.

“You can say it’s similar to making a trade and having two guys come in, but we didn’t trade anybody,” Gooden said. “It’s a plus for us to be healthy right now and contributing down the stretch.”

The Pacers also got some help Wednesday, as swingman Mike Dunleavy saw his first action since breaking his thumb against Washington on Feb. 22. Dunleavy, who missed 20 games, scored nine points in 19 minutes.

Milwaukee, which ranks last in the league with 91.6 points per game, has averaged 89.7 in losing nine of 12 on the road. The Bucks, though, have won three straight at Conseco Fieldhouse - all by four points or less.

Indiana has taken nine of 12 when holding opponents to under 100 points.

Since the Pacers have made it a habit to give backup Players career scoring highs.....we will find out tonight when he gets his career high against the Pacers.

Also...I doubt that Bogut misses tonight's game....it's too critical for the Bucks. My guess is that he'll suck it up out there and play through it.
