Victor Oladipo hit for thirty-six points against Philadelphia on Wednesday night but he got little help in a six-point home loss.
It was an unusually unbalanced scoring evening for the Pacers, who got just two other players in double-digits, including Domantas Sabonis off the bench.
Doug McDermott had another quiet night. He started off hot, hitting double-digits in the first three games and four of his first five. He hasn’t recorded another such night since then. He’s still over forty percent from three-point range.
Philly broke out offensively against Indiana, despite nobody scoring over twenty points. Indiana’s defense will have to deal with a similarly balanced offense, though perhaps not as potent on Friday in Miami.
Miami was also in action on Wednesday evening and defeated the Spurs by seven points, 95–88 in South Beach.
The Heat got Hassan Whiteside back on the same night it lost Goran Dragic. Both guys are dealing with knee injuries and while neither is considered serious, both guys are banged up in the early going, which doesn’t bode well, especially after both missed games from time to time last season with nagging stuff.
Whiteside was huge against the Spurs, who lack a traditional, rim-defending center. Whiteside went for twenty-nine points and twenty rebounds in thirty-two minutes.
Wayne Ellington hit a season-high twenty points in extended minutes (and shot attempts) without Dwyane Wade, who missed the game for personal reasons. He should be back soon, though it’s unclear whether or not it will be for this game yet.
Josh Richardson will have the responsibility of guarding Victor Oladipo. The Heat sure could use Dragic’s scoring in this one because it’s going to take a full effort out of Richardson just to mark Oladipo on the defensive end.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction: Miami and under.
I see this game similarly to how I saw Miami’s game against the Spurs. I’ll give the Pacers a slightly better chance than the Spurs but I’ll take the home team in a coin-flip game that sits right around 200 points, flat.
