How to Live Stream the Game

The matchup will be televised nationally on ESPN at 10:30 p.m. ET and is available via the ESPN app. Further streams can be found on the NBA stream subreddit via ​this direct link.

The Blazers will be a man down as they're without star shooting guard ​CJ McCollum, who suffered a knee injury in their loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday (he'll be reevaluated in a week). Look for superstar guard Damian Lillard, who averages 26.1 points per game, and center ​Jusuf Nurkic, who averages 15.4 points and 10.4 rebounds, to shoulder most of the load. 

As for the Pacers, they have won two of their last five games and are coming off a buzzer-beating loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday. They will be looking to gain some momentum back on Monday against an ailing Blazers squad. The Pacers are currently fourth in the East and have finally begun sliding a bit since the loss of star shooting guard ​Victor Oladipo. 

 

The Blazers come into this game as a slight favorite, but should still be on alert for a Pacers team looking to get back on track heading into the playoffs.
