Injured Pacers Point Guard Darren Collison Will Start Game 3

ESPNChicago.com’s Nick Friedell and Mark Montieth report that Darren Collison will start Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Chicago Bulls.

Collison was injured in the second quarter of Game 2 when he tripped over a cameraman underneath the basket after a missed layup.

The Pacers desperately need Collison to play, as they are +6.9 points per 100 possessions in the series with him on the floor. Without him, that number plummets to -16.7.
