It’s an Eastern Conference matchup as the 11th seed Washington Wizards head to Indianapolis to take on the 7th seed Indiana Pacers.
On the second night of a back-to-back, the Wizards will hope to take care of the inconsistent Pacers in similar fashion as they did the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, the Pacers will hope to get back over .500 and win their second in a row after a great effort against the Detroit Pistons.
For John Wall and Bradley Beal, the first 26 games of the 2016-2017 season have been good to them. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been great to the team as a whole.
At just 12-14, the Wizards have the 22nd ranked defense in the league and have struggled to hold teams off late in games.
However, the month of December has seen the Wizards improve on both sides of the ball. Washington is 6-3 this month, including 4-1 in its last five.
The offense has been clicking thanks to John Wall’s 24.6 PPG and Bradley Beal’s 22 PPG. Beal has been on a tear in his last five games. He’s put up 20, 29, 20, 25, 41 in those last five and is shooting 48% from the field.
With Beal and Wall in sync, the Wizards have started to find their way after an abysmal start to the season. If the Wizards keeps this play up, they’ll have a good shot at beating the inconsistent Pacers in Indianapolis.
It’s been difficult to figure out if this Pacers team is good and just struggling to click as a unit, or if the team is average and destined to be average all year.
Superstar Paul George is the leader of this team. However, his stats are down slightly from his fantastic 2015-2016 campaign. His PPG is down from 23 to about 21 and his assists are down from 4.1 to 3.1.
Newly acquired point guard Jeff Teague has started to find his place on this team. He’s averaging 15.1 points per game and 7 assists per game.
The frustrating thing for this Pacers team has been finding consistency from its best players night in and night out. For the year, the team ranks 14th in points per game and 22nd in opponent’s points per games. This hasn’t been conducive to stringing together wins.
The team has lost to six of the worst teams in the NBA and those six losses, had they been wins, would have this team in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference.
This sums up what the Pacers are dealing with through 28 games: a lack of consistency and lack of depth.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Washington is 4-1 ATS in last five games
- The UNDER is 4-1 in Indiana’s last five games
Free Washington Wizards vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Wizards are looking like the better team in the month of December. With wins in five of the last six games, along with great play from Wall and Beal, the Wizards should be able to beat this Pacers team.
I like the Wizards to get the W.
