Jeff Teague led the way with 30 points, nine assists, six steals, and five rebounds.We wanted him (Teague) to be aggressive, McMillan said. I thought Jeff played a solid floor game, not only scoring but setting up his teammates.The Pacers (7-7) have had a lot more success at home compared to the road, as theyve gone 6-2 in Indianapolis this season. They will look to their home crowd and the adrenaline of playing the Western Conference Champions to try and play well in the quick turnaround.The Warriors are 11-2 on the season, and 3-0 on this current road trip. Their road trip will conclude on Monday night.Kevin Durant has now scored 30-plus points five times this season, including in the win against Milwaukee on Saturday.Draymond Green had a big defensive stop Saturday night, proving how the Warriors can beat you in many different ways.Thats what Draymond does, coach Steve Kerr said.

They have three players averaging 20 points per game or more (Durant, Curry and Thompson.) Theyve been every bit as advertised so far this season.Former Pacer David West will be in the building with his new team. He was a fan favorite in his time with Indiana.Both teams are in the top seven in the NBA in 3-point percentage and overall field-goal percentage. It could be another high-scoring affair.The Pacers are 3-1 against the Western Conference this season, and the Warriors are 3-0 against the East. All three of those games have been on this current road trip.The Warriors swept the two-game season series over the Pacers last year in their record-breaking regular season.

LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues have won at least 49 games in each of the past three seasons and advanced to the Western Conference finals last spring.Doing it again this season will require effort from a bunch of new players.David Backes, who spent 10 years in St. Louis, is now in Boston.

Steve Ott, after two-plus seasons with the Blues, is now in Detroit.Theres no time to be sad about somebody, Blues right winger Vladimir Tarasenko said. They were great players and theyre still good players, but they play for other teams, so were going to play against them now. It seems like we have a really good team right now and Im just looking forward for our season to start.Before the 2015-16 season, the Blues traded T.J. Oshie to Washington for Brouwer and opted not to re-sign defenseman Barrett Jackman. St. Louis went 49-24-9 with 107 points, just two points less than in 2014-15.The Blues core group has changed slightly over the years but Ken Hitchcocks squad remains one of the most talented groups in the NHL.Tarasenko set career highs in goals (40) and points (74) last season, ranking fourth in the league in goals and 12th in points, after signing an eight-year contract extension.

Its been quite the grind to get to this point but I feel like the process is finally paying off.Some things to watch this year with the Blues:FAREWELL HITCHHitchcock announced this offseason that this would be his final season, which led to a shakeup among his assistant coaches and with former Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo coming in as an assistant and the designated coach in waiting.MIND THE NETCan Jake Allen carry the load? The Blues are counting on Allen to be their No. 1 netminder after trading Brian Elliott to Calgary. Allen has looked the part in a part-time roll, with a 2.34 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 99 career regular-season games, but St. Louis needs him to carry the load this season.LEADERSHIP QUESTIONSThe Blues lost veteran forwards in captain David Backes, Troy Brouwer and Steve Ott in free agency.
