Indiana Pacers vs. Golden State Warriors Predictions and Picks
The Pacers could be a bit weary tonight as they get set to play their third game in four nights. Indiana comes into this game already on a two-game losing streak, and you have to think this roster is getting a bit stretched with six players already on the injury list. They’ll face a well-rested Warriors team coming off consecutive wins against the Clippers and the Raptors.
Per TeamRankings, Indiana is ranked 13th in the league in terms of pace while Golden State is second. The Pacers allow their opponents to dictate the game’s tempo when they’re on the road. Indiana is averaging seven more possessions per game on the road (109.5) than when they’re at home (102.5). If we look at their effective field goal percentage, which is adjusted to account for three-point field goals vs. two-point field goals, Indiana is sixth (55.7%) in the league in this category and second (58.1%) when they’re on the road. With the Pacers are attempting almost four more three-pointers (36.7) on the road vs. at home (32.9), I think we can expect to see a fast-paced game with plenty of points on the board. Keep in mind that Golden State is ranked 10th with 13.6 three-pointers made per game.
I like this game to stay over the total, and I think this Golden State will also benefit from this tough scheduling spot that Indiana faces.
The Pick: Over 227.5 and Warriors -3
