Charlotte is not having a good season. They might have been considered good enugh to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference but nobody really saw them as a team that would win in the playoffs. They are what they are .
Conversely, Indiana has been better than I expected. They too are not really a threat to the powers that be in the Eastern Conference but they definitely look like they will make the playoffs and are building.
The Hornets seem to be in the unenviable spot of not being good enough to contend but also not being so oviously bad as to tear it completely down to the studs. They have some piece but definitely not enough.
Kemba Walker has proven time and again that he is a winning player. The problem is that he is someone who dominates the ball and is not very efficient. That can work a little bit late in games but not all game long.
Dwight Howard is still a very useful player but you can’t feature him on offense. Some games it looks like he can score 40 points because he makes his first couple of shots but after that you don’t get much other than defense and rebounds.
Nic Batum was a revellation when he first came to Charlotte but this season he has been hurt and off his game. The two could certainly be related but the Hornets are not winning a lot of matchups on the wing as a result.
This looks like a lost season for Charlotts and they might start trading away some pieces. If they do things could get really ugly but as they are currently constituted they can put a scare into some teams.
I feel like there was a lot more talk about Indiana earlier in the season. Now that we have all basically accepted that this is a good team there is not much new to say.
They should get better in the future but for right now they are a team you can’t take lightly.
Indiana has been a surprise as one of the most efficient offensive teams in the league. Myles Turner was supposed to be the guy who took the leap but this season but it has been Victor Oladipo who has led the way for the Pacers.
Turner just returned to the lineup from injury and should start getting more minutes but his numbers are down across the board.
The Pacers are very balanced offensively. In addition to Oladipo’s 24ppg there are five other players who score either 12 or 13 points per contest.
It is hard not to like the aggressive game of Domantas Sabonis, who is among that group. He is smart with the ball and I can see how he becomes a double-double machine in the future.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Pacers are just four point favorites for this one which kind seems like it is all about the venue. I think there is a greater gap between these teams than that.
This one looks like a pretty nice value with the Pacers at home. They only have to win by a couple of possessions. They do not have to dominate, though they might.
