The Indiana Pacers are one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. The Charlotte Bobcats are one of the worst.
One of the Bobcats nine wins this came against the Pacers, though, in a one point game to start the season off.
Since then, things have gone pretty bad for Charlotte since then.
The ‘Cats did start 7-5, but they’ve won just two games since November 24.
Kemba Walker has had a rough month, scoring just 14 points on 43 percent shooting per game to go along with five assists and 3.5 rebounds. He has, for whatever reason, played just 29 minutes per game this month, though.
The Pacers are winners of nine straight at home, and 22 games overall this year.
Indiana has won those games on the strength of its rebounding (No. 2 in the league) and defense (No. 1 in the league).
For the Bobcats to pull the upset, they’re going to have to get out and run and score some points in transition.
The Pacers love to win ugly, and slow things down. It the ‘Cats can take them out of their comfort zone, they’ll have a chance to win the game.
The matchup tips off at 7:00 pm tonight at Banker’s Life Field House in Indianapolis.
