On Wednesday night, the Pacers put fans on edge with a grind-it-out win against the relentless Grizzlies. Come Friday — in their first Hickory Night of the 2017-18 season — the Pacers’ margin for error will be even slimmer as they face off against the 10-4 Detroit Pistons.
The Hickory Night game — which will honor the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame and city of New Castle, Indiana — comes at a time in which the Pacers are trying to fix an issue that has plagued them all season, losing leads late in games.
During a recent four-game losing streak, which included a loss to the Pistons, Indiana led by double-digits in the second half of three of the four games. And during their win over Memphis, the Pacers saw a 17-point fourth-quarter lead chopped down to just three points with the Grizzlies having a chance to tie in the final seconds.
