Two teams fighting for a playoff spot in their respective conferences go at it when the Portland Trail Blazers and Indiana Pacers play on Sunday night.
Currently, Indiana sits in 6th in the East while the Trail Blazers sit in 7th in the West. Both teams come in off tough losses, which is something they can’t let snowball.
The Trail Blazers have been used a solid month of February to sky rocket back into the Western Conference playoff race, but come in off a tough loss to one of the teams they’re fighting against.
Portland saw Houston come into their house and demolish them in a 119-105 game. The Trail Blazers defense completely collapsed as they allowed James Harden to put in 46 points.
The loss was exceptionally hard to take, considering they led by as many as 17 points. Houston outscored Portland 37-29 in the 3rd quarter and 33-12 in the 4th quarter.
Damien Lillard and CJ McCollum led the way with 23 and 20 points, respectively. The bench saw Gerald Henderson and Maurice Harkless produced double figures off the bench.
The key has been that bench and their play. When they produce, the Trail Blazers have success. Look for them to really be the key factor in this one.
The Pacers had a chance to grab a giant home win over Charlotte on Friday, but saw Kemba Walker hit a shot with just 2.4 seconds left as they gave away a win against a team they’re fighting with.
With the loss, Indiana is now 18-10 at home and just 13-14-1 ATS in that span.
Indiana has now lost 2 of their last 3 and will finish up the 3 game homestand here against Portland. Following this, they head out for a 4 game swing that will start in Cleveland to close the month out.
Look for the Pacers to really try to slow the pace down in this one, as Portland loves to get out and run, which is what they did the last time these two teams met. Portland put up 123 points in a 123-111 win, as the Pacers allowed them to shoot 52% from the field.
On the season, Indiana has allowed 100.3 points per game.
