Facing a Raptors squad with only one typical starter they led for most of the match before succumbing. The next night in Washington with the Wizards superstars both playing they kept things interesting despite not having Luguentz Dort, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander or Isaiah Roby available.
Darius Bazley had a career night with 26 points and was the main defender on Russell Westbrook causing him no end of issues as he struggled to score 13 points on 5 of 18 shooting.
Bazley got some assistance from Kenrich Williams who scored 15 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Rookies Theo Maledon (14 points, seven rebounds, five assists) and Aleksej Pokusevski (eight points, four rebounds, five assists) are getting tons of experience and benefitting from the experience as starters.
Moses Brown who was upgraded from a two-way deal to a varsity contract suffered his second consecutive poor outing and consequently Tony Bradley got more run posting 16 points, three rebounds, and two steals.
Svi Mykhailiuk and Ty Jerome each contributed 11 points in their reserve roles.
After a solid week of producing a career-best score (42 versus Jazz) and strong offensive efforts Luguentz Dort was out with a right hip strain versus the Wizards and is questionable for Wednesday.
Isaiah Roby (toe) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (plantar fasciitis), Josh Hall (knee), Mike Muscala (ankle), Gabriel Deck (not with team) are all expected to be out.
Just as it seemed the Basketball Gods were leaning in favor of the Pacers with the Hornets continual descent down the ladder injury news for both teams shifts their direction dramatically.
To wit, rookie LaMelo Ball who was expected to miss the remainder of the season got his cast off and now seems destined to make a return.
Simultaneously, the Pacers got news Myles Turner has suffered a tear of his plantar plate in his big toe that will keep him out indefinitely.
Entering this match the Hornets reside in eighth with a two-game lead over the Pacers who sit ninth with a two-game pad over the Bulls and Wizards and 2.5 game edge over the Raptors.
Of the five clubs the Wizards and Raptors have performed the best through the last 10 games. It should make for a dramatic final 15 games down the stretch.
Domantas Sabonis (back) and Jeremy Lamb (knee) didn’t play Monday and are questionable for Wednesday. Turner (toe) as noted is out as is T.J. Warren (foot) who is out for the season following foot surgery.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
While a typical Thunder squad would jump on the Pacers especially if Sabonis joins Turner on the bench, but the Thunder are finding creative ways to lose and should be counted on to make it 12 losses in a row.
