The NBA is back in action today as the Toronto Raptors will clash with Indiana Pacers.
The Raptors are heading into this game after a 120-105 over Sacramento Kings. While the Pacers come after a 120-95 against the Charlotte Hornets.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Raptors are one of the best teams in the NBA this season. Moreover, they are on the top spot in the Eastern Conference and are one of the favourites to win the title this year. However, they face swift competition from the Bucks as they are in a tight race for the top spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Raptors score an average of 113.9 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough for the 6th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 45 boards per game combined with 24.3 dimes per contest.
On the defensive side of the game, the Raptors concede an average of 108.3 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 9th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Their main man this season is Kahwi Leonard as he leads the team with 27.6 points per night.
Indiana Pacers Form
The Pacers are heading into this game after winning their last two. Moreover, they showed some character as they were dominant against the Hornets on Sunday.
Victor Oladipo had a solid game as he scored 21 points in the win.
Also, they are three games behind the Bucks for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
On the offensive side of the game, the Pacers score an average of 109 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 21st spot in the league in scoring.
Also, their average stands at 43.8 boards per game combined with 25.9 assists per night.
The Raptors have been playing really good this season so far. However, they have a tight schedule and I think that the fatigue will eventually come to them. On the other side, the Pacers are a very solid team and they play at home.
Also, they have two wins in a row and the momentum is on their side. Therefore, I will take the Pacers in this one.
