The NBA Basketball season is finally Here! This season looks to be one of the more exciting years in recent memory. With all the drama (good drama) surrounding the league, this year should be special.
The Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers will take the court tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. This marks the first game of the year for both teams. Expect emotions to run high during the first few minutes of the game.
The Brooklyn Nets were one of the worst teams in the NBA last season. They finished with a record of 20-62. The record had them in 15th place in the eastern conference last year.
Head coach Kenny Atkinson is hopeful his squad can get more wins this year. The Nets were decent on offense last season. Brooklyn ranked 12th offensively, scoring with 105 points per game.
Defensively, the Nets were horrible. They ranked 29th out of 30 teams last season on defense. Brooklyn allowed
Brooklyn’s starting five will consist of D’Angelo Russell, Jeremy Lin, Allen Crabbe, Timofey Mozgov and DeMarre Carroll. Not exactly a jaw dropping starting five.
The Nets could struggle to find leadership within the locker room. With D’Angelo Russell coming over from Los Angeles in free agency, the Nets expect him to be their number one scoring option.
The Indiana Pacers had a tough off season. With the loss of superstar forward Paul George, this will be a huge void to fill starting the season. What George did for the Pacers can’t be replaced.
Last year, the Pacers were 42-40. Good enough to finish 7th in a terrible Eastern Conference. Indiana made the playoffs last season. They were swept 4-0 by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Indiana finished in the middle of the pack last year on both sides of the ball. Indiana averaged 105 points per game (15th) and allowed 105 points per game (14th) last year.
Head coach Nate McMillian will have his hands and full trying to replace George’s versatility in the lineup. Right now, it looks like Victor Oladipo will be the first scoring option in Indiana to start this season.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers are expected to finish towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference again this season. Both teams have unproven lineups that lack star power.
It should be interesting to see how both teams matchup in the 2017-18 season opener.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers -3.5
Take the Pacers at home. Hopefully Oladipo can turn into the scoring/ defender he was projected to be when he was drafted.
