Indiana got the win on Monday against Toronto but it came with a cost. Domantas Sabonis left the game and didn’t return.
At times, with him, they look like a team that could be a threat in the Eastern Conference. At others less so.
Charlotte would love to be considered that way. They are one of the most inconsistent teams in the league right now.
The word on Sabonis right now is questionable. I think they are going to be extra careful with him so don’t count on him playing.
Fortunately, the Pacers can still have an inside presence with Myles Turner. They often play together but he is more than effective as a single big.
Turner is one of the most enigmatic players in the league. He can be a menace on defense and he has a varied offensive game but there are just some games where he is invisible. That is why Sabonis surged ahead of him.
After a tough game on Sunday against Toronto Malcolm Brogdon was fantastic on Monday, scoring 36 points. I love this game. He might not be the most talented but his production always comes without forcing it.
Jeremy Lamb was also a beast against the Raptors. They need his scoring even if he is a liability on the defensive end. I was impressed with how varied his game has become.
No Sabonis means opportunity for Goga Bitadze. A questionable draft pick a little while back he becomes the only player with size they have on the bench. Charlotte does not play with much force so it is probably just fine.
Indiana is shorthanded. However, this is exactly the kind of game they usually win, where knowing what you want to do is even more important than talent.
Charlotte also played a team twice in a row too, splitting with Orlando. These teams are going to play a two game series also.
The Hornets have to be thrilled with the play they have been getting from Gordon Hayward this season. He is the leading scorer and much more consistent than their guards.
The enigmatic duo of Terry Rozier and Devonte’ Graham do not seem destined to mimic what Portland has with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. These two can shoot the Hornets in and out of any game.
Charlotte has to get more production up front. In the loss to Orlando, Bismack Biyombo outscored starting forward PJ Washington 7 to 2. Washington has to be better than that because the bench does not offer much in the way of scoring.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
I like a shorthanded Indiana here. They will rely on Brogdon and Turner to lead them to a workmanlike victory in this one. It won’t be emphatic, just effective.
The line is key. If there is momentum on the Pacers and you have to play them as more than a bucket favourites then take a pass.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers -1.5
Charlotte can be a nice play as a dog because their scorers can get hot but not on situations like these. You need more of a cushion.
