Orlando and Indianapolis are 823.19 miles apart from each other. That was the distance the Indiana Pacers traveled last night in order to make it back home to take on the "currently a playoff team" Sacramento Kings, who narrowly defeated the Pacers the last time the two teams met. Despite a now hilariously predictable bad start, the Pacers rallied back once again and came out victorious in the end.Take that, back-to-back
The Pacers are now a ridiculous 5-0 on Night Two of back-to-backs so far this season. That's almost unheard of, as tired legs typically lead to complications for teams when they play two games so close together.

Sactown Royalty: Kings vs. Pacers Preview: Can Sacramento Steal Another One?
Just one week ago the Sacramento Kings faced the Indiana Pacers at home and came away with a one-point victory. Willie Cauley-Stein flushed home the game winning tip-dunk with 16 seconds left. And while he did everything he could to allow the Pacers a chance at a game winner of their own, Bojan Bogdanovic's wide open jumper rimmed out. The Kings have rolled the Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers this week to put them on a three game win streak, but the Pacers want revenge and they'll have a chance at it tonight on their home floor.

ESPN.com: Pacers look to avenge recent loss to Kings
One week after a down-to the-wire clash in California, the Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings are set to do it all over again Saturday in Indianapolis.
Perhaps the home-court can do for the Pacers what it did for the Kings on Dec. 1, when Sacramento used an 8-3 run down the stretch to pull off a 111-110 victory on a Willie Cauley-Stein put-back dunk with 16 seconds remaining.
Both teams will be playing the second half of back-to-back games as each played on the road Friday night. The Pacers cruised to a 112-90 victory at Orlando, while the Kings rolled 129-110 at Cleveland.
