Indiana-Pacers
The Detroit Pistons for my eyes are the worst team in the NBA. Not for the fact they have the worst record, but they are playing the worst and have spent a lot of money establishing that bunch of players. Coach/GM Stan van Gundy has taken the initiative to release a Josh Smith who had more than $20 million on his contract remaining for 2 years. He has then preached that over the last few days where they have been resting and focussing on their defensive efforts. Since Smith had been taking the most shots, and been the most ineffective scorer, their offensive efficiency should improve in the coming games.

 

The Pacers have finally started getting a lot of their players back healthy and fit and are only missing Paul George now. George Hill came off the bench for his season debut netting 15 points in a short 21 minute stay, and that should give him some confidence to eventually take his spot back in the first five. A lot of the scoring for Indiana has been on the reliance of Stuckey, Hibbert, West and Watson; all of whom are experienced and been in the league a long time. Despite their struggles because of injuries, the team still managed to keep their defensive efforts in check and are conceding only 96 points per game.

 

Indiana are 8-1 have had the best of their division rivals in this series matchup and they have covered the spread in all of their victories. Pistons are extremely poor in scoring shooting 41% which is the lowest in the NBA and rank near the bottom with 94.4 ppg and I expect the Pacers to build on their 2 game winning streak with a 3rd one now.
