Returning from the break, Indy split their two matches and even in the loss were competitive forcing the Celtics to beat them in overtime.
Indy has the 21st-ranked stretch run strength of schedule and currently sits in the 12th seed within range of climbing into the play-in tournament berths.
Specifically, they are 1.5 games back from the Bulls (11th) 2.0 games back from the 10th-seeded Wizards, and 3.0 games back from the Raptors.
Presently, the Pacers average 115.0 points per game ranking 12th while shooting 46.1% from the field and 36.4% from deep ranking 25th and 12th.
Defensively, Indy allows 117.4 points per game (23rd) while opponents shoot 47.6% from the field and 37.3% from the perimeter ranking 18th and 26th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Kendall Brown SG (Questionable -G League, two-way)
- Trevelin Queen, SG (Questionable -G League, two-way)
Coughing up a 27-point lead should have the Mavericks reeling over that collapse. After all, Kyrie Irving was supposed to cement this team as a title contender.
Obvious takeaways from the loss were how much the Mavs have stepped back defensively since the trade. They’ll get some good news on that front as Maxi Kleber (who tore his hamstring) is expected to return this week bolstering the defensive end of the court.
That’s an incredibly fast turnaround for that severe of an injury.
Mavs PF/C Maxi Kleber officially upgraded to questionable vs. Pacers tomorrow after missing 2 1/2 months with torn right hamstring.
Dallas has 108.3 DRtg in Kleber's 564 minutes and 116.2 DRtg with him off floor.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Depending on how you view the Mavericks collapse this game is either a perfect opponent for them to get back on track or terrible timing because the youthful Pacers are only too happy to take advantage of a preordained great team — just ask the Celtics, Warriors or both LA teams!
Defense is the issue with neither team offering much on that side of the hardwood of late. If Kleber is back that’ll help Dallas but I’ll still take the points.
