Hornets vs. Pacers

Matchup to Watch
David West vs. Cody Zeller: West is a very rugged, crafty veteran scorer at power forward. That will challenge Zeller to guard aggressively while avoiding foul trouble.
• The Pacers won the last meeting in Indianapolis when Solomon Hill put back a miss at the buzzer.
• Lance Stephenson, just back from missing 14 games with a pelvic sprain, is again matched against the team he played for his first four NBA seasons.
• Kemba Walker missed practice Friday with a sore left knee and is questionable for this game. If Walker can’t play Brian Roberts would start at point guard.
• Gerald Henderson missed Friday’s practice with an upper-respiratory infection.

Reserve guard Donald Sloan, hardly a household name, has had the Pacers’ biggest scoring game this season – 31 points against the Washington Wizards.
