Perhaps the biggest concern facing the Indiana Pacers during their longest winning stretch of the season is the health of one of their top players.
The visiting Pacers expect center Roy Hibbert to be on the floor as they try for a fourth consecutive victory Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Indiana's leading rebounder at 8.4 per game, Hibbert suffered a deep thigh bruise in the first half of Saturday's 88-77 win at Detroit. Though the 7-foot-2 Hibbert did not return to the contest, Pacers coach Frank Vogel expects him to be ready Tuesday. If not, Vogel may need another strong effort from his bench.
While starting forwards David West and Paul George combined for 38 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists, Tyler Hansbrough had 11 points with six rebounds off the bench and fellow reserve Jeff Pendergraph added two with three boards in just under eight minutes.
That team effort helped Indiana (13-11) to its third straight victory and ninth in 13 games.

MILWAUKEE A perfect storm was working against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

Milwaukee is simply one of those teams the Pacers don't match up well against, primarily because of the quickness of their guards, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis.
As expected, the dynamic backcourt duo gave the Pacers all sorts of problems and combined for 55 points, with Jennings' 34 leading the way in their 98-93 win, their second of the season against Indiana.

MILWAUKEE -- If there was any rust in Mike Dunleavy's game, it certainly didn't show.
After missing the last six games and seven of eight with a bone bruise in his left knee, Dunleavy looked like he hadn't missed a beat. While he may have picked up right where he left off, the Bucks needed him back and his impact in Tuesday's 98-93 victory over Indiana was evident...
