Indiana Pacers at Detroit Pistons

How can you not bring up the Malice at the Palace whenever these two teams play?

Indiana has won two games in a row after reaching their longest losing streak of the season.

Josh Smith has put up 20.8 points in 20 matches versus Indiana since 2007-08, his highest mark against any team during that time.

But this would be a statement game if the Pacers blew the Pistons out of the building early to show that they are back in the fold of championship contention, and the losing streak was a fluke.

My record: 6-3
