How Indiana Wins

Indiana will win the game if they keep playing great defense. They are the best defensive team in the league. Their opponents only score an average of 92.2 points per game and that ranks 1st. The Pacers opponents only shoot an average of 34.3% from 3 point range and that percentage is ranked 3rd in the league. The Pacers also need to keep blocking shots. They rank 4th in the league in shot blocking as they block an average of 5.7 per game.

 

How New York Wins

New York will win this game if they keep playing good defense. Their opponents average 100.1 points per game and that ranks 13th in the league. The Knicks will also have to rebound the ball better. They grab an average of 48.6 rebounds per game and that ranks 26th in the league. The final thing they will need to do is find a way to score more points. The Knicks average 98.9 points per game and that ranks 20th in the league.

 

My Prediction

Both of these teams want to make this a low scoring defensive battle. Whichever team can get key offensive scores and win the rebound battle will have the best chance at winning the game.

I think that the game is low scoring like both teams want. I think that the Pacers gets the key offensive scores and wins the rebound battle. I think the Pacers go on the road and beat the Knicks.

Final Score

Indiana: 97
New York: 93
