Pacers, Nuggets jockeying for position in playoff races

INDIANAPOLIS -- Just three weeks remain in the NBA season, and the playoff races are heating up in both conferences. Two teams in the middle of each race will do battle Friday night as the Indiana Pacers host the Denver Nuggets.

The Pacers (36-35) are just one game behind the No. 5 seed Atlanta Hawks (37-34), but only a game and a half ahead of the Miami Heat (35-37) for the No. 8 seed in the East.

The Pacers are in the midst of a historic run, but not the kind of history they want to make. They have alternated wins and losses in 15 straight games, one shy of tying the NBA record, set by the Buffalo Braves in 1977-'78. They hope the trend will continue for one more night, because they lost in Boston on Wednesday by a final score of 109-100.
