The Indiana Pacers' five-game winning streak came to end Friday, but they'll get a chance to get back on track against a team they've beaten in nine straight meetings.
The Washington Wizards they'll face Saturday night, though, are hardly the same club they last saw three months ago.
The Pacers try again to clinch their first Central Division title in nine years Saturday night, but to do so they'll have to end the Wizards' eight-game home winning streak.
Indiana (48-28) had won eight of nine heading into Friday's visit from Oklahoma City, but it failed to take advantage of a chance to claim its first Central crown since 2003-04. The Pacers trailed by one at the half and five after three quarters, but were outscored 25-8 in the final 12 minutes in a 97-75 loss to a Thunder team that arrived in Indianapolis at 4 a.m.

Pacers Projected Starting Lineup
A full recovery is expected and Danny Granger is expected for the start of the 2013 training camp.
Ouch. That's all I can say after the Oklahoma City Thunder pounded the Pacers 97-74 in Indiana. The game was kinda close for two-and-a-half quarters, though the Thunder seemed in charge all the way. In the end, despite Roy Hibbert's 22 and 8, it came down to the fact that OKC had superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, while the Pacers simple had three regular All...
