|Pacers Return Home Down 2-0 vs. Bulls
|INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indiana Pacers are close to having a 2-0 lead against the Chicago Bulls. And now they could be short-handed going into Game 3 Thursday.
Interim coach Frank Vogel said point guard Darren Collison is doubtful after spraining his left ankle in the second quarter of Game 2. Collison insists he'll play.
The top-seeded Bulls have rallied from double-digit deficits in both first-round games. They could push the Pacers to the brink of elimination with a win on Thursday.
Chicago guard Derrick Rose averaged 37.5 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the first two games. Chicago also had a 49-34 rebounding advantage in Game 1 and a 57-33 edge in Game 2.
