The Washington Wizards enter their contest with the Indiana Pacers having won three straight, but that alone doesn’t tell the whole story of their recent success. They’ve won 10 of their last 11 contests, as well as 17 of their last 20.
The Pacers, on the other hand, had a seven-game winning streak not too long ago, but have since lost four straight.
*All statistics, standings, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 6:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017.
The Wizards enter this game averaging 108 points per contest. That number is good enough to land them a top-1o spot in the NBA (8th), and that number has increased to 115.3 during their current three-game winning streak.
Defensively, this group is allowing opponents to score 105.4 points per night. That number is good enough for 13th in the league.
Against Indy, priority No. 1 is containing Paul Gorge. He’s a superstar by definition the way he plays on both ends of the floor and he can be a difference-maker even when his teammates aren’t carrying their own weight.
As far as those teammates go, the Wiz need to step out on Myles Turner and trap Jeff Teague.
Letting Paul George get his numbers is going to make it a close game; letting the role players get theirs could be a death sentence.
Indiana enters this contest averaging 105.7 points per night. That number puts them at 14th in the league — one game ahead of the middle of the Association.
Defensively, this group allows opponents to score 106.2 points per game. That number is only good enough for 21st in the league.
Over the last four games, the Pacers have failed to earn a win, but they’ve actually gone 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 overall.
The problem is that they’re coming off a Wednesday night contest on ESPN against the always-tough Cleveland Cavaliers. The Pacers are just 9-23-1 ATS in their last 33 outings where they played the evening before.
For what it’s worth, they’re also just 3-13 in their last 16 Thursday night contests.
