The Indiana Pacers are looking to make some noise in this year’s NBA playoffs. They are currently riding a two game losing streak, with their most recent loss coming at Atlanta, 107-102. Milwaukee is also on a losing streak, only the Bucks have dropped three in a row, and four of their last five games.
The last time the Pacers and Bucks took the court against each other, was earlier in the year, January 8th. The Pacers got the win, 109-96. Expect a better effort from the Bucks this time around.
The Pacers have dropped two straight road games. One of their more disappointing losses of the year, came at Atlanta. The Hawks are terrible this season, and forced Indiana to have 24 turnovers in the loss. If the Pacers are going to make a run in the playoffs, they must figure out how to win on the road.
Indiana is 13-16 on the road this year. Their disappointing road record, is not something the Pacers want going into the postseason. So the time to get on the right track is now for Indiana. The Pacers are a far more talented team than their vistinig record indicates.
Victor Oladipo is the teams leading scorer, and NBA’s Most Improved Player. Oladipo’s 24.1 points per game leads the Pacers this year. Aside from Oladipo’s ability to score as the teams number one option, Indiana has five other players scoring in double figures this year.
Myles Turner has been huge for the Pacers on defense this year. His ability to protect the rim has been key to the Pacers winning close games this season. He leads Indiana in blocks this year with 2 per game. Defensively, the Pacers are allowing 105.3 points per game, ranking them 13th in the NBA in points allowed this year.
This game is going to come down to how the Pacers can play away from home. Indiana can’t afford to get down early in this one.
The Milwaukee Bucks may have hit their post-Jason Kidd wall. The Bucks were playing well after Kidd’s firing, but have recently lost four of their last five games. Milwaukee last took a pounding on the road against the Pistons their last game. Milwaukee shot bad from the floor in the loss.
The Bucks shot 38.4 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from three point land in the loss to Detroit. The Greek Freak only played 30 minutes, and shot 5 of 13 from the floor in the loss. He had to leave the game with an apparent eye injury. His status for tonight’s game is still up in the air.
If the Bucks are without Giannis, the team could struggle protecting the rim. His length and ability to block shots is huge for the Bucks success. The Bucks are allowing 105.3 points per game this year. Good enough for 12th in the league this year. Without their star, the defense would rank in the low 20’s.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
The Pacers should be motivated to get back on track. Struggling is not an option for Indiana to make the playoffs, so expect a full team effort in this matchup.
Milwaukee is in a funk right now, and could be without their leading scorer and rim protector in Giannis Antetokounmpo.
