Indiana’s season can really go either way right now.
They’ll look to send it in the right direction as they get set to take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night.
New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans battled multiple injuries all season long and it really never let them get into any kind of rhythm or gain the necessary momentum.
With Anthony Davis shut down, the Pelicans will look to remain healthy throughout the rest of the season, while getting a look at some players who could play a role on next year’s team.
New Orleans comes in off a 1-2 homestand, as they dropped the finale to the Heat 113-99, failing to cover the 8.5 point spread. Covering the spread has been a challenging thing for them this year.
New Orleans has gone just 29-41 ATS and 14-21 ATS on the road.
Ryan Anderson (groin), guard Eric Gordon (finger), guard Tyreke Evans (knee) and guard Norris Cole (back) are all OUT.
The Pacers are really could go either way.
Currently they sit 7th, just 0.5 game up on 8th place Chicago and 9th place Detroit. However, in their sights sit the 4 teams battle for the 3rd spot, as the Pacers sit just 3.5 back of that pack.
Indiana also has the benefit of an easy schedule ahead of them. 9 of the final 13 games for the Pacers will be against sub .500 teams, meaning they certainly have plenty of chances to make a push at a better seed.
Look for George Hill to be the key, down the stretch. He’s played exceptionally well as of late, shooting 18 for 28 over the past 3 contests.
