Even without Victor Oladipo this season, the Pacers have become a deadly opponent. Malcolm Brogdon has become a valuable pickup as he is providing the Pacers with his career numbers with 18.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists per night. Filling in the paint is Domantas Sabonis who currently averages 17.9 points, 13.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists. TJ Warren is also having a good season doing 17.8 points. The Pacers looked formidable as they upset the Los Angeles Lakers by 3 points on December 17. Like them, the Milwaukee Bucks gave the Lakers another loss and to beat the bucks they need to dig deep in their roster for production and those may come from Jeremy Lamb, Doug McDermott and Justin Holiday. Myles Turner had a subpar season but they need him to be more assertive against the Lopez twins and even guarding Giannis Antetokuonmpo.
