These teams have been solid so far. At .500 the Pelicans might be a little below expectations but the same record is good for Indiana, which doesn’t have as much talents. New Orleans is still trying to prove they can succeed with the mix.
If you like bigs this is the game for you. Might be the only matchup where you can say the top three players in the game are big men.
New Orleans Pelicans
I love the experiment the Pelicans are running. Demarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis are two of the most skilled players in the league. There is no doubt in my mind they can make it work.
What is making it tough early on is that the surrounding talent just isn’t there. If they are going to write off the experiment prematurely then that is on them not these two who are producing like crazy. I am excited for Rajon Rondo to get healthy/
Jrue Holiday is not a bad player just not a true point. His assists per game are only slightly above Cousins and he is not a good deep shooter. They might be better served to give more minutes to Jameer Nelson.
Ian Clark is someone who can space the floor. They brought him in to shoot and they probably need to play him more than they have. He is combo size but with those bigs on the floor the perimeter guys can take more chances.
New Orleans has won two in a row, both on the road. The way they can punish teams inside seems to make for a good strategy away from the home. As does being strong on the boards.
The Pacers big time big man is Myles Turner. He might one day be as good as the aforementioned Cousins and Davis but for right now he is still developing his game. He has not been able to play in all of the games this season and it looks like he is just now getting up to speed.
The Paul George trade netted Victor Oladipo and Damontas Sabonis. So far so good with Oladipo averaging 23ppg and Sabonis putting up double-doubles. I have always liked the spring game of Sabonis and he will help Turners development too. This Indiana team is different than what your brain is used to.
Indiana has shed their defense first mentality and is sixth in scoring. They are increasing their bombs but are also efficient – third in the league in FG%. When they are dropping they can overcome depth issues.

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
For the Pacers to win they have to have Myles be able to keep pace with one of the bigs for New Orleans. That is tough to do.
If he can’t that puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the group to show that their depth is better than the Pelicans. It probably is but they can’t have anyone have an off night if the big guys are balling.
