This matchup features the Pacers traveling to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder.
The Pacers have won 3 of their last 4, while the Thunder ended a 4 game losing streak by beating the Rockets Wednesday night.
The teams split last season’s series, and this game features two of the league’s most explosive players in PAul George and Russell Westbrook.
The Pacers faced a Cavaliers team without Lebron James (rest), and came away with a convincing victory.
Dynamic small forward Paul George put up a great performance against the backup SF’s, finishing with 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists.
He is averaging 21 points and 7 rebounds per game this season, and continues to be one of the Eastern Conference’s best players.
He goes up against Victor Oladipo and Andre Roberson most of the night, 2 of the athletic wing defenders for the Thunder. This won’t stop him from putting up big numbers, as I expect him to finish with 30 points and 8 rebounds in this contest.
Jeff Teague has been solid for the Pacers this season, and he had a good game against Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers Wednesday night. He had 20 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds in a matchup of two of the East’s best point guards.
He squares off against Russell Westbrook, who is arguably the MVP of the league in the early portion of the season. Teague will put up respectable numbers, but I don’t see him slowing down Westbrook on the defensive end.
Myles Turner put up respectable numbers against the Cavs, finishing the game with 12 points and 8 boards. He had a tough matchup against one of league’s best low post defenders in Tristan Thompson so I didn’t expect big numbers in that game.
This game he faces another good low post defender in Steven Adams, so look for similar numbers from Turner when this game ends.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook has started this season on a tear, averaging 31 points, 9.8 assists, and 9.5 rebounds per contest. Could he finish this season averaging a triple double?
Most fans will say no as he can’t keep up this strong play for the entire season, but I believe he has a shot to do it.
He finished the big matchup against James Harden with 30 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds. Against Jeff Teague expect him to put up 40 points and 9 assists, as he will continue his red hot streak.
Victor Oladipo had a great game against the record. He put up a season high 29 points, had 10 rebounds and also chipped in 5 assists.
He is the best 2 guard the team has had since arriving to Oklahoma City, and look for his strong play to continue in this matchup. He will end the game with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.
Steven Adams will have a good low post matchup against Myles Turner.
The defensive big man has opened up his offensive arsenal this season, averaging nearly 10 points and 9 rebounds per contest.
If he can slow down Myles Turner, or get him into early foul trouble, it should be an easy win for the Thunder and their slashing guards.
