Due to a family emergency involving his mother, Flip Saunders was unavailable for the game against the Pacers.  Wizards Assistant Coach Randy Wittman led the Wizards against the struggling Indiana Pacers who, entering the contest, had lost their last two games by 12 points or more.  The Pacers were also on the second night of a back-to-back and their third game in four days.

The Wizards, who are win-less on the road, play solid basketball at home.  So even with the absence of Flip Saunders, this was easily a winnable game for the Wizards who have been playing better basketball since the second half of the New Jersey Nets game.
