Wednesday, March 21 finds Indiana Pacers arriving at Smoothie King Center face their host the New Orleans Pelicans. In their last game Indiana beat the Lakers. The Pelicans arrive following a win versus Dallas on Tuesday in the front end of the back to back set.
Last season, the squads split the series and this year the Pelicans took the 1-0 edge. The Pacers hold the all-time record having bested the Pelicans in 22 of their 35 matches.
The Pacers sit a half game back of the Cavaliers and lost an opportunity to move higher with back to back losses to the Raptors and Wizards. In the two previous games to the losses however, Indiana were able to capture big wins over Philadelphia and Boston.
Victor Oladipo continues to lead the way, but is getting substantial help from Myles Turner, Darren Collison, Thaddeus Young and Lance Stephenson.
For now the Pacers sit in the fourth seed, but have the toughest eastern schedule remaining with seven games on the road, five currently seeded squads as well as two games against the Clippers and another versus the Nuggets.
Domantas Sabonis (sprained ankle) missed the past three games and is listed as unknown versus the Pelicans on Wednesday.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans have been vacillating between win streaks and losses to key western seeds. In fact three of the Pelicans last four losses are to the Rockets, Spurs and Jazz.
Anthony Davis has been nothing short of spectacular doing this stretch. The problem is the lack of depth on New Orleans.
In the win over Boston Davis posted 34 points, 3 assists and 10 rebounds. Tuesday his stat line of 37 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, 2 of 3 from deep and 15 of 21 shooting efficiency.
