After generating one of the best months in the Eastern Conference, the Pacers slip up continues as they try to end a 3 game losing streak when the Heat come to town on Friday.
The Pacers had one of the best months of November, but with the calendar turning, so did their momentum.
Indiana allowed 131 points to the Golden State Warriors last time out and will look to rebound against one of the best defensive teams in basketball.
The Heat have proven themselves as one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, but they’re certainly not playing like it as of late.
Miami allowed 106.5 points per game in back-to-back losses. Their regular season mark now sits at 93.3 points against per game, which says a lot. Miami has been able to shut down the opposition all season long, which had led them to a solid start to the season.
The Heat opened their 4 of 5 on the road with a blowout loss to Charlotte last time out. The Hornets had their way in a 99-81 win as Miami looked sluggish on both ends of the floor.
Bosh and Wade struggled all night long as they put up 18 points combined.
The Pacers were comparable to Golden State in the Eastern Conference during the month of November.
However, they lost a lot of steam and have now dropped 3 in a row, including a loss to the Warriors last time out. While they scored 123 points, their comeback fell short as the Warriors racked up 131 points themselves.
Prior to this skid, the Pacers had won 12 of 14 overall and were getting stops on the defensive end with ease. They were allowing just 93.2 points during that winning month.
Things have gone the complete opposite way as they’re now allowing 125.3 points during this 3 game losing streak.
G C.J. Miles is 14-of-28 from behind the arc during this current losing streak.
