For the fifth time this season, the Milwaukee Bucks are set to take on the Indiana Pacers. This time, the Bucks will travel to Indiana for a Wednesday night showdown.
After all of the drama and the multiple times playing each other in such a short period of time, these two teams do not like each other at all. That alone sets the stage for a very entertaining game tonight.
Just two short days ago on Monday night, the Pacers were able to pull off a big comeback win over the Bucks. Indiana won that game by a final score of 122-113.
Indiana Pacers Make Two Roster Moves Before Facing Milwaukee Bucks
Prior to tonight’s game, the Pacers made two roster moves to bolster their depth. They recalled two rookies from the G-League. Both Jarace Walker and Ben Sheppard will be available to play on tonight’s contest.

Will these moves have much of an impact on the game? Probably not. However, both Walker and Sheppard have played small roles for the Pacers this season.
Walker is a bigger wing or forward that can defend well and has the ability to score when he plays with confidence. Sheppard is a pure shooter that the Pacers are very high on for the future.
The Milwaukee Bucks need to come into this game with a fire lit under them. Indiana has bested the Bucks in the season series by a count of three to one. While the Bucks have already lost the season series, this game has a lot to do with pride.
Make sure to tune in tonight to see if the Milwaukee Bucks can pick up a much-needed win over the Pacers.
