The Pacers have won 3 of their last 4 games and their last 2 and their last one was a very impressive home win over the San Antonio Spurs. Indiana sits in the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Mavs have hit the skids as of late losers of their last 4 games. What makes that streak even worse is that their last 2 losses have come on their home floor.
The Mavs have lost 6 of their last 8 games, but they are still in the playoff picture in the 7th spot in the Western Conference.
In their last games the Pacers beat the San Antonio Spurs 99-91 and the Mavericks lost to the Detroit Pistons 102-96.
The Pacers rank in the middle of the pack in terms of scoring (15th), but they are led by their defense, which ranks 8th in the league in terms of opponents’ points allowed.
While Indiana won their last game against the Spurs that game was in their house and on the road this season the Pacers are 4-games under .500 (15-19).
The Pacers have 5 players averaging in double figures led by Paul George and keeping him from having a big game is key for the Mavs. He is averaging 23.6 ppg on the season and the 2nd leading scorer Monta Ellis is averaging 14.5 ppg.
The Pacers had scored at least 100 points in 3 straight games, but they beat the Spurs because of their D holding San Antonio to 91 points and a FG% of only 35.4%.
Earlier this season in Indiana the Pacers crushed the Mavs beating them 107-81.
The Pacers are a very balanced team that ranks 14th in the league in scoring and 16th in opponents’ points per game.
The Mavs’ D has struggled as of late giving up an average of 107.5 ppg in their last 4 games and in their last 2 games their offense has averaged 93 ppg.
Ditk Nowitzki is the leading scorer for Dallas and while he has averaged 25.7 ppg in his last 3 games, while shooting over 50% from the floor in all of those games, he has not gotten much help.
2nd leading scorer Deron Williams has really been stinking it up in the last couple of games and he needs to get back on track for Dallas to end their skid.
The Mavs are 19-15 at home this season, but have dropped their last 3 in the Big D.
The Mavs need to start winning, as they are only ? game up on the Rockets for the 8th spot in the West.
Getting to the playoffs is obviously key for Dallas, but they also want to finish 6th or higher in the West to avoid playing the Warriors and Spurs in the first round.
