The Indiana Pacers finish up a road trip tonight as they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. It's the first meeting between the two teams this season, and it's the first night of a back-to-back for the Pacers.

Oklahoma City has been one of the best teams in the NBA this season, and they currently sit on top of the Western Conference. They are currently the only West team without 20 losses. Indiana, meanwhile, is coming off of an important win over the Magic in Orlando. They'll hope to start a winning streak tonight.

Here are the official starting lineups and injury reports for the action.

Indiana will be missing Doug McDermott (right calf strain), Bennedict Mathurin (torn right labrum), and James Johnson (illness) tonight. Oscar Tshiebwe, Isaiah Wong, and Quenton Jackson are inactive due to their status on two-way contracts.
