Sunday, November 7th finds the Indiana Pacers facing the Sacramento Kings in their first meeting this season. The Pacers arrive having lost to the Blazers on Friday while the Kings are riding the high of a beatdown of 140-121 beatdown of the Hornets.
Last season, the squads played twice with the Kings taking both contests. The Pacers hold the all-time record having bested the Kings in 50 of their 92 matches.
Rick Carlisle’s young Pacers stumbled to start the season losing six of their first seven games. In fairness, his club was reeling with injuries with Caris LeVert missing the first six games, Malcolm Brogdon in and out of the lineup, and TJ Warren still out.
With LeVert’s return Indy seemed to get back on track winning two in a row and taking the Blazers to the wire before losing 106-110.
They are better than their record suggests and with Carlisle at the helm, they should improve on both ends as the season progresses. The big question is whether Kevin Pritchard will stick with the roster he has.
For years the fit of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis has been raised and if things don’t get significantly better odds are Turner is the player they’ll shop.
In the interim, they’ll try to gain some ground and mesh as a team on a road with seven of their next nine games away from home.
In the loss to the Blazers, the Pacers erased a 16-point deficit to take the lead into the final frame but couldn’t close. TJ McConnell filled in for Brogdon and led the scoring with 19 points.
Sabonis registered a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds while five Pacers scored in double-figures.
Brogdon (illness) and Jeremy Lamb (ankle) are questionable for Sunday while Isaiah Jackson (knee) and Warren (foot) are out indefinitely.
The perimeter was on fire Friday as the Kings made franchise history connecting on 22 triples at a 50 percent efficiency. Although several Kings got in on the action it was Richaun Holmes who got the game ball for his massive 23 points, 20 rebounds double-double.
Buddy Hield scored 26 points in a reserve role hitting eight of his 17 long ball attempts. All five starters, Hield and rookie Davion Mitchell (19) scored in double-digits.
Harrison Barnes (14 points, 10 rebounds) also collected a double-double while De’Aaron Fox flirted with one (21 points, nine assists).
Sacramento has been trending in their matches, winning two then losing two. If they stick to this habit they’re due for a loss.
The Kings have no injuries to report.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
Although Holmes plays much bigger than his 6’10” size the matchup versus Sabonis will be a key factor in the match. Likewise, watch for Luke Walton to give rookie Davion Mitchell some time on Caris LeVert to counter his scoring prowess.
Both squads are in the top tier of points scored with the Kings ranking second and the Pacers 11th but like always the team who brings the more aggressive defense will be the victor.
