(43-31) Indiana Pacers vs. Golden State Warriors (54-19)
The Pacers clinched a playoff berth on Sunday night with an overtime with over Miami. Indiana keeps pace with Philly and Cleveland ahead of it and is still very much in the running to nab the 3-seed if it catches a break or two down the stretch.
As of now, Indiana is the 5-seed and set to play Philadelphia in what would be quite a competitive first round matchup.
Victor Oladipo feels like a lock to win the NBA’s Most Improved Player when the awards are announced in another couple months. He’s been unreal but don’t overlook some of the other improvements made by the rest of the Pacers.
Myles Turner is back and healthy after missing a couple of games with a bum ankle. He was quiet against Miami but has had a great season overall. He’s averaging 13.5 and nearly 7 boards and it wouldn’t surprise me if he took a huge leap, not only next season, but in this year’s playoffs.
And how about Domantas Sabonis leading the team with 8 rebounds per game in 24 minutes per game? This guy has been a major piece that was acquired alongside Oladipo in the trade for Paul George. Not many have appreciated his great season outside of Indiana.
Golden State Warriors
Steve Kerr made it pretty clear last night that Steph Curry won’t play in the first round of the playoffs. He said there would be “no chance” Steph comes back in time to start the postseason, which begins in three weeks.
Curry suffered a grade 2 MLC sprain when JaVale McGee fell on his leg a few nights ago. He will be shutdown for three weeks, which brings him to the end of the regular season, and be re-evaluated after that.
It’s a big blow for Golden State, but not something totally unfamiliar. Curry was out for the start of last season’s postseason. What could be a potential problem is if either Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson aren’t ready, too.
Durant is still recovering from fractured ribs and Thompson isn’t yet back from a broken thumb, but both could return this week, next week at the latest, it sounds like.
The betting markets have reacted to the Warriors’ health concerns, in addition to Houston’s winning. The Rockets are still underdogs in the West but you can get Golden State at +110, +120 to win the NBA Championship now, after being much shorter than that all season.
Of course, neither of those guys will play in this game, just like the last game, when Golden State was crushed at home by Utah.
