(21-23) Charlotte Hornets vs. Indiana Pacers (29-15)
The Hornets were last in action on Thursday, when they routed the Kings for their second consecutive win. They got Friday off but play on Saturday against Phoenix before hitting the road for Indianapolis.
Tony Parker gathered six assists in about 18 minutes off the bench the game after helping his team to a win over his former team, the Spurs. Four Charlotte bench players scored in double-figures against the Kings.
Kemba Walker led the way with 23 points. He didn’t shoot particularly well but dished out five assists to just two turnovers, as well.
Willy Hernangomez had a double-double in 25 minutes off the bench, scoring 11 points and grabbing 16 rebounds.
The Hornets are two games under .500, though, according to the expected record, they should be two games over. Charlotte trails Miami just barely in the division. Those two will likely fight to the end for the right to get a bottom seed and lose in the first round.
Indiana got smoked at home by the 76ers on Thursday. Jimmy Butler shot it well and dished out eight assists without turning it over in a terrific individual performance. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid put up big numbers and JJ Reddick shot it well from outside in the win.
Philadelphia’s bench, which isn’t nearly as strong as Indiana’s, played well too. It combined to hit 7-of-10 3-point shots and score 30 points among four different players.
The Pacers only got 15 points out of Victor Oladipo, who took 20 field goals attempts to get there. Oladipo isn’t having the season, statistically, he has last year when he was an All-Star.
Perhaps that’s so, but the Pacers are still winning. They go for 30 wins on Saturday night against Dallas, which will give them twice as many victories as defeats. This will be the second game of a back-to-back.
