So far Charlotte has looked like the second best team in the Eastern Conference after Cleveland.
Indiana has looked like two different teams, winners at home and losers on the road.
This does not look like a great situation for them to try and get their first road win.
The Pacers have definitely changed their style of play this season. They are the top 3 point shooting team in terms of percentage and 5th in the NBA in scoring.
Unfortunately all that extra offense has come at the expense of defense, they are third last in the league in points allowed.
Paul George seems to like the new systems. He is shooting great and averaging 22ppg and 6rpg despite logging heavy minutes. Nobody on the team is playing all that much.
Sophmore Myles Turner is making the most of the opportunity leading the team in rebounding and blocks while his 17ppg is second. 17 and 7 in just 29 minutes per game is pretty good.
The guy who is lost in all of this is Monta Ellis. He is actually leading the team in minutes per game but is 6th in scoring at under 10 points per game.
The Pacers need to find a way to break through on the road if they want to be a contender in the Eastern Conference.
The Hornets have gotten off to a very good start even though some injuries have been draining their depth – check the status of Marvin Williams as game time approaches (viral infection).
It is early but Kemba Walker is on pace for this best season yet. He has been much more efficient than we have seen him in the past and it is boosting his scoring – though his assists are slightly down.
Nicolas Batum is providing his usual all around game but his shooting has been way down. He has enough of a track record that we can assume it will regress back up to the mean.
Frank Kaminsky, last year’s top pick is shooting well and making more of a contribution than he did as a rookie. His shooting loosens things up for others. Plus he knows how to find the open man.
He is getting more playing time with Roy Hibbert out due to injury.
At this point Michael Kidd-Gilchrist might not ever develop a strong offensive game. However, he contributes in many ways and is currently leading the team in rebounding. Not bad for a small forward. Plus his defense is always good.
The Hornets know who they are so it is not a surprise they have gotten off to a strong start.

Indiana is not going to go the whole season without winning a road game but things are a little messy for the Pacers right now. I am not confident they are there just yet.
