Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets (By: Miyagi)

Oladipo comes from a poor offensive performance against the Mavericks last night as he finished the game with 12p (26% FG) in what was his third straight game that he struggled deeply in the offense, with most noticeable the one against the 'soft' Suns and his 8p (18% FG).

Oladipo's bad streak continues as he has now failed to hit the 20p mark in his last 7 games and although he had some great games since his return from injury, there must be a relation, considering his great start in the season. Well, its all set up from him today to dome some serious damage and boost his morale and confidence.

The Hornets are the worst team in the league, by far, defending Oladipo's position during their last 6 games, which 'coincidentally' is when Lamb returned from his minor injury. Lamb has never been a solid defender but he is well beyond that point recently as he has become a liability for his team. During his last 5 games, Booker scored 32p, Hield score above 20 twice with a total of 11 three-pointers in those two games, even McCollum scored 30p with a huge 5 3P!

Both Oladipo and Lamb are on second games of back to back sets but that probably works in Oladipo's favor offensively as it is fair to expect even less intensity from Lamb in defense. It seems reasonable (certain to me) that the Pacers with target Lamb offensively and Oladipo has a great chance to go above 20p today and I have no second thoughts, considering the low line and those huge odds.
