(5-5) Indiana Pacers vs. Detroit Pistons (7-3)
Wednesday, November 8 finds two Eastern Conference foes entering their fourth week of play in the 2017-18 regular season for the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons. The Indiana Pacers will be getting back some key players as the Pistons look to keep their hot start.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Pacers sweeping the series. The Pacers hold the all-time record against the Pistons with a 96-90 record.
The Pacers have an explosive offense which surprisingly ranks fourth (110.3 ppg). The return of Myles Turner who missed seven games with a concussion will bolster their struggling defense (109.1 ppg). Victor Oladipo leads the offense with averages of 23.8 points and 3.8 assists.
The Indiana Pacers lost 108-101 to the New York Knicks on Sunday night. Indiana was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter and blew a lead that was as large as 19 points.
They should take the final quarter of that homestand with them, though.
Oladipo led the Pacers with 17 points but he only shot 7-of-21 from the field. Domantas Sabonis went for 16 points and eight rebounds off the bench. The Pacers had no answer for Kristaps Porzingis who had a career-high 40 points.
New York shot 50 percent from the field and Indiana shot 47 percent. Rebounding was a key as the Knicks out-rebounded the Pacers 46-34 in the game. Darren Collison finished with 15 points and 10 assists in the loss. Thaddeus Young added 18 points on 4-of-4 from 3-point range
The Pacers will need to get on a fast start in order to tackle the fast pace Detroit Pistons.
Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy knew during the offseason that he needed another piece to get the Pistons into playoff contention in the Eastern Conference. Bradley scored 24 points, Andre Drummond had 16 points and 19 rebounds, and the Pistons beat the Sacramento Kings 108-99 on Saturday.
The 26-year-old Bradley went 10 for 15 from the field. He was acquired in a trade with Boston in July. Tobias Harris added 20 points for Detroit (7-3), which won for the fifth time in six games.
The Pistons had 18 points off Sacramento turnovers, while the Kings only had nine. They have recorded more points off turnovers than their opponent in nine of their 10 games.
Back-to-back 3-pointers by Reggie Jackson and Harris gave the Pistons a 77-69 lead late in the third quarter. Detroit led 85-74 heading into the fourth, and held off a brief Sacramento surge early in the period.
The Pistons scored the game’s first 10 points, but Randolph scored 10 points in the first quarter to keep the Kings close. Sacramento led briefly in the second quarter, but Bradley’s 13 points were enough to give Detroit a 52-49 lead at halftime.
