Storylines 

Pacers: Though many expected them to fall after the season-ending injury to Victor Oladipo, the Pacers remain in the thick of the playoff picture in the East. Every game is about positioning for Indiana at this point in the season. Currently fourth in the East, if they can hold off the fifth-seeded Celtics, they will secure homecourt advantage in the first round, at least. 

Clippers: The Clippers are currently eighth in the West, but they are only a game out of the fifth spot, so their motivation is clear; continue to move up the standings (if possible), while riding the hot hand of likely Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams

Game prediction, pick

This one is a close call, but the line likes the Clippers, and that's the way I would lean. The Clippers are a pretty impressive 22-13 at home, while the Pacers are under .500 (17-18) on the road. Plus, the Clippers have been playing better ball recently as they have gone 8-2 over the past 10 games, while Indiana has gone just 4-6 during that same span.
