Both of these teams play the night before. Indiana will be on the road against a good Detroit team while Dallas gets Toronto at home. That definitely looks like a loss for the Mavericks coming out of the holiday break. Detroit is probably a coin flip game for the Pacers but one they will be more motivated for too.
Indiana is a pleasant surprise for me. I was not sure what to make the Paul George deal but there is no doubt it was a good transaction for the Pacers.
The bottom may have fallen out from under Dallas. They were actually favoured in back to back road games last week and they lost both outright. They won’t be favoured here.
I like Harrison Barnes a lot but if he is your best player you just aren’t very good. His versatility is awesome on a strong team but not worst as much on a bad one.
Rookie PG Dennis Smith Jr is playing like a first year player. He is second on the team despite terrible shooting so far. I do like his upside and attitude though.
Dirk is seeing minutes at center this season but it not winning that matchup most of the time. He is a Hall of Famer and they actually respect him so they will keep running him out there.
There is not much hope for things getting better this season. Maybe Dirk finds the mountain of youth but what would that actually bring.
I do not see the Pacers as a threat in the Eastern Conference this season but they might be the fourth best team. Ridding themselves of George and actually getting useful pieces was brilliant. Victor Oladipo is having an MVP calibre season. He has been way better than I expected.
Domantas Sabonis is exactly what this team needs to pair with Myles Turner. He is the team’s leading rebounder and seems to always make the right basketball play. I love his motor too. His ceiling is not as high as Turner’s but I think his energy will push him. They are a nice duo to watch together.
Veterans Darren Collison and Thaddeus Young fill in the gaps for this group. They are not able to take over games but they can make sure that this team has consistency and they will be invaluable once the playoffs arrive. They, and a couple of others, are important parts of the overall mix.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Both teams are playing the night before so no real advantage gained there though Indiana will be playing at home instead of hitting the road.
Assuming nothing crazy happens in Detroit this is a game they should take, especially if they lose to the Pistons. The line seems a little light to me.

Indiana will be sharp at home and make the Mavs wish they were still on the holiday break.
