Golden State Warriors
The Warriors step into this evening’s contest sporting a 35-14 record that ranks them No. 1 in both the Pacific Division and the Western Conference. But since the Denver Nuggets are but a game and a half behind Golden State, it’s safe to say that the Warriors cannot afford any losses in the coming days. Fortunately Golden State isn’t contending with any injuries at the moment and shouldn’t have much of a problem building on their astounding success. And since the Warriors are 6-4 in their last 10 versus Indiana, it stands to reason that they have the edge this evening. All in all, the Warriors come in with the better offense, scoring 118.8 per game to the Pacers’ 108.9. However, there’s no denying that Indiana comes in with the better defensive unit as they’re only giving up 103.2 while Golden State allots 112.0. Despite that discrepancy, tonight’s NBA basketball betting odds are pegging the Warriors as massive favorites on the road.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.3 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 5.4 apg), Kevin Durant (27.9 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 5.9 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.8 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 2.0 apg).
The Pacers step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 32-16 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Central Division. And in the Eastern Conference, Indiana ranks 3rd overall. Currently 3 games behind the conference leading Bucks, it’s safe to say that the Pacers are right in the mix of things. However, the Pacers have suffered two losses in their last 5 games against less than reputable teams. Their most recent loss came at the hands of Memphis, who currently ranks 14th in the West. And since Victor Oladipo will be out of tonight’s contest, we can fully count on Indiana suffering handily to the Warriors without their superstar.
Players to Watch: Victor Oladipo (18.8 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 5.2 apg), Bojan Bogdanovic (16.1 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.7 apg), and Domantas Sabonis (14.8 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 2.8 apg).
