The San Antonio Spurs (9-3) are back in action tonight as they travel to Indiana to face the Pacers (6-7) for their final meeting of this season. Their first meeting resulted in a Spurs win, 101-79, at the AT&T Center with Tim Duncan pacing San Antonio with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Gary Neal led the bench effort with 17 points. The Pacers were led by George Hill's 15 points and four assists. It was Indiana's worst loss of the season. The Spurs are also coming off a big win over the Celtics, 112-100, where six players scored in double figures. Tony Parker led the way with 26 points and six assists.  The Pacers are coming off a 115-107 overtime win against the Hornets with Paul George finishing with a career-high of 37 points. George scored 33 of his 37 in the second half of that game. And as the Spurs and Pacers get set to face for the final time this season, here are five things to watch for in tonight's contest: • With an average of 90.8 ppg, the Pacers are the fourth lowest scoring team in the league and their 41.3 percent shooting from the floor is third lowest in the NBA. • The Pacers give up an average of 16.154 ppg off their turnovers good for the 13th lowest average in the NBA. • The Pacers are the only NBA team that has held its opponents to less than 35 points a game in the paint (34.769) and the opposition has scored 38.079 percent of its points from the paint. That's third lowest in the NBA. • The Spurs are 2-0 on the road when leading at halftime. • The Spurs are 3-0 on the road when they have two-or-more players scoring 20 points or more.
