The NBA’s best offensive center against perhaps the best defensive center in the league will be featured on NBA TV next Tuesday.

The Kings’ game at the Indiana Pacers will be featured on NBA TV after receiving the most votes for the weekly NBA Fan Night. Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, who leads the all centers in scoring at 23.5 points per game, will be matched up with Indiana’s supreme rim protector, Roy Hibbert.

The other games fans could have selected were New York at Charlotte, Oklahoma City at Memphis or Cleveland at the Los Angeles Lakers.

Hibbert got the better of Cousins last time they matched up in Indianapolis last season. The Pacers won, 106-98, in double overtime on Nov. 3, 2012.

Cousins had 21 points and 13 rebounds, but shot 9 for 27.

Hibbert had 12 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots.
