The Pacers and Warriors are the only National Basketball Association teams that haven't met this season.
Durant, is the Warrior who benefits the most from Curry's absence, as he averages 29.9 ppg, 7.6 rpg and 5.5 apg. The Pacers will face the defending National Basketball Association champions twice over their final eight games. They have been playing well, having won two in a row and three out of four, beating the Heat 113-107 in OT in their latest.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is less concerned about playoff seeding than he is the health of Curry, who suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee Friday against Atlanta.
Curry will be re-evaluated in three weeks, which means he will miss the start of the postseason, according to Kerr. "So, yeah, we have to be ready to play without him and see how he's coming along". No one embodies that culture quite like Curry, who is the engine of the NBA's most terrifying winning machine.

The Pacers, meanwhile, had plenty to celebrate on their flight after Sunday's playoff-clinching win.
Not surprisingly, the squad that includes the likes of Jonas Jerebko, Royce O'Neale, Ekpe Udoh, Georges Niang and David Stockton - yes, Nada's son - surged to the much-needed victory. That win kept them tied with the fast charging 76ers. "So we know - and that team was different than now, but we didn't have Kevin Durant".
