Advice and prediction
The Pacers are one of the top offenses in the league this season, ranking sixth in offensive rating. They also have the seventh-best defense in the league and the sixth-best net rating.
Specific to the Pelicans, who allow by far the most 3-pointers in the league this season but the third-fewest attempts at the rim, the Pacers are middle of the road (16th) in 3-point frequency, bottom 10 (21st) in accuracy, first at getting to the rim and slightly above average (11th) in finishing at the rim.
It spells for a slog of a game. Even at the relatively low number, take the under on 217.5.
Prediction: Pelicans 98, Pacers 95
