Indianapolis - We're just a week away from the start of the Pacers' regular season, and they want to get fans pumped up.

Pacers host and sideline reporter Stacy Paetz spoke to Eyewitness News on Sunrise this morning about the Fan Jam at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Fan Jam runs from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, with autographs from players at 2:00 pm. It's a free event, with free parking at the Virginia Ave. Garage.

"There's gonna be so much going on here. I'm so excited about this. This is an annual affair for us, because it is really like you mention, the regular season's about to begin. They've got two games on the road this week then Saturday is our home opener. Today is our way of giving back to the fans," said Paetz.

Fans can expect to see a different side of the players, including trivia about the rookies. The rookies also have to do "some crazy gotta see the rookie show! I'm a little bit fearful of what the veterans might have these rookies do, but I'm certain it'll be a good show," Paetz said.

The first 5,000 fans will get freebies like a backpack and vouchers for food and drink.

"It's a fun-filled day and we certainly hope we can fill this place up," she said.
