Wednesday, February 3rd finds the Central Division rivals Indiana Pacers and the Milwaukee Bucks meeting for the first time in the 2020-21 campaign.
The Bucks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 104 wins in 195 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the Pacers being one of the few teams in the association to win the regular-season series three games to one.
After a mini two-game losing streak the Pacers broke through with a big offensive night scoring 134 points against the Grizzlies (116) to stop their seven-game win streak.
Indiana recorded season highs in several categories in the win with the most points in the first quarter (37), most points at the half (71), and most in a game (137).
Domantas Sabonis recorded his 14th double-double of 32 points and 13 rebounds. Myles Turner also recorded a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds as well as five blocks to add to his league-leading blocks total (70).
Malcolm Brogdon (23), Jeremy Lamb (19), Doug McDermott (11), and Justin Holiday (10) were the other double-figure contributors
Caris LeVert (kidney) and TJ Warren (foot) are rehabbing from surgeries with no timetable for return.
The Bucks ended a two-game losing streak via an offensive outburst where they led by as many as 39 points. The perimeter marksmen were on fire as they connected on 21 of 42 triples.
It was the opposite of what they did during the past three games when they allowed the Raptors (22), Pelicans (21), Hornets (21) to score 21 or more 3-pointers.
Facing Damian Lillard the thinking was it would be another perimeter scoring fest but they held the Blazers to 15 triples on 42 attempts limiting Dame to two of seven.
They jumped on the shorthanded Blazers putting up 46 points in the opening frame and entered the halfway mark having scored 79 points and led by 23 points finishing the match with close to a thirty point differential (134-106).
Giannis Antetokounmpo was nursing an ankle sprain but played although he had a relatively slow night scoring 18 points with four rebounds and six assists.
Jrue Holiday led the way with 22 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and three steals. Bobby Portis (21), Khris Middleton (17), DJ Augustin (13), and Bryn Forbes (13) were the other double-figure scorers.
The Bucks’ new recruits are still integrating with their new teams with this match being one of their better efforts this season.
While Forbes is a sniper the Bucks are quickly realizing his defensive deficiencies and need to have other strong defenders on the court with him.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Last season the Pacers owned the Bucks as their frontcourt poses issues for Milwaukee who pride themselves on protecting the paint and force teams to shoot from deep.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers +8.5
Both clubs enter having posted big offensive nights but the Pacers played the night prior which gives the Bucks the rest advantage and that should be the difference in the match.
