KEY GAME INFORMATION
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.
CHICAGO: GUARDS: The best guess on DERRICK ROSE is a February return. But an ACL injury usually isn't 100 percent until the second full year back . . . With Rose out, KIRK HINRICH figures to play heavy minutes early. He's a defensive specialist who will pass and watch on offense . . . NATE ROBINSON could push Hinrich for minutes. He's the offensive half of that platoon, but Thibodeau almost always leans defense . . . RICHARD HAMILTON will carry a bigger offensive load while Rose is recovering. He's a shadow of his former self . . . MARCO BELINELLI is a nice addition. He's solid defensively, and he brings the long-range shooting Chicago lacks. Don't be surprised if he pushes Hamilton . . . Rookie MARQUIS TEAGUE will mostly sit and watch this year. FORWARDS: After avoiding wrist surgery, LUOL DENG should be Chicago's top scorer while Rose is out. He's the only one on this team who even has a chance to generate his own offense . . . CARLOS BOOZER continues to be a major disappointment. In the past it's been his atrocious defense, but now he's taken a step back offensively as well. He may score more with Rose out, but he'll continue to sit late in close games . . . TAJ GIBSON should be in for a bigger role. With Omer Asik gone, he's one of only two defensively capable bigs on this roster . . . VLADIMIR RADMANOVIC will try to replace some of the three-point shooting they lost when Kyle Korver left . . . JIMMY BUTLER has a puncher's chance at a rotation spot after a good summer. CENTERS: JOAKIM NOAH was still working his way back from that badly sprained ankle this summer. His durability is questionable, but the Bulls will have to lean on Noah for more minutes now that Omer Asik is gone . . . NAZR MOHAMMED steps into Asik's role as Noah's backup. But while Asik was an active defender, Mohammed is more of just a big body with six fouls to give.

*Pacers-Bulls Preview* ======================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Indiana (42-26) at Chicago (36-31), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Following a difficult stretch, the Indiana Pacers are once again making progress toward their first Central Division title in nine seasons.

A season sweep of the Chicago Bulls would certainly help their cause.

The Pacers will try to extend their lead in the division by sending the slumping Bulls to another loss Saturday night at the United Center.

After dropping four of six, Indiana (43-26) has won its past three games by an average of 22.4 points. David West has missed all three of those games with a back injury, but Tyler Hansbrough has started in his place and averaged 18.0 points and 12.3 rebounds.

Hansbrough had a team-best 22 points and 12 boards Friday in a 102-78 rout of Milwaukee.

"I feel like I'm trying to get into the flow of the game, not rushing," Hansbrough said.

With the win, the Pacers moved six games ahead of second-place Chicago in the Central, and they can widen that gap even further with their first season-series sweep of the Bulls since 2001-02.

"It's going to be tough to get that fourth win (of the season) against Chicago, but I think the guys are up for the challenge," coach Frank Vogel said.

Chicago (36-31) has dropped six of eight - beginning with a 97-92 loss at Indiana on March 3 - and is in danger of losing three straight for the first time since November. The Bulls got starting guard Kirk Hinrich and reserve Taj Gibson back from injuries Thursday but fell 99-89 to visiting Portland.

They trailed by as many as 28 before making the score a little more respectable in the fourth quarter. The Bulls are a half-game ahead of Boston for sixth place in the Eastern Conference, but their slump has left them only 2 1/2 games in front of the eighth-place Bucks.

"Every game counts, and we need everybody. We've got to keep pushing," Gibson said. "It doesn't get easy at all if you look at our schedule. We've got a lot of tough teams coming up. We've got to keep fighting."

Chicago is still playing without superstar point guard Derrick Rose, who said "nobody knows but God" when he'll return from last year's knee surgery. Veteran guard Richard Hamilton hasn't played since Feb. 26 because of back spasms.

Hamilton was also out the last time the Pacers visited Chicago, an 80-76 loss for the Bulls on Dec. 4. Paul George had 34 points and nine rebounds as Indiana won for the second time in three trips to the United Center following nine straight losses there, including three in the 2011 playoffs.

George is averaging 21.7 points and 10.0 boards in the season series. West has been even more productive against the Bulls in 2012-13 - totaling 60 points on 22-of-36 shooting in the last two matchups - but he is expected to remain out Saturday.

Hansbrough has shot 5 of 25 and averaged 3.6 points in his last five games versus Chicago, all as a reserve.
