Indiana Pacers vs Minnesota Timberwolves – NBA: The Indiana Pacers have been having a reasonable season.
The team has a record of 19-17, which is enough to leave them in 7th place, dividing that spot with the Miami Heat.
It has been a season of some changes, with the main one being the departure of their biggest star Paul George.
But a new “king” has arrived in Victor Oladipo, that has been putting up incredible numbers and is already idolized by the fans.
The team, however, is on a poor streak, already having 3 consecutive losses and they are the only team in the East that is on a negative streak.
There is some pressure on them because the 9th place is only 1 win away from them, so we’ll see how they respond to it.
This Pacers team plays a very offensive basketball, especially on a more collective sense and they are the 4th best team in terms of “field percentage” and the best 3-point shooting % team in the NBA.
The Timberwolves are a team that generated a lot of “buzz” and has one of the strongest rosters in the NBA.
\They managed to make great deals on the off season and after a lot of “tanking” they managed to put together a scary team.
The team has a good record, being 22-14 and sitting in 4th place with OKC 2 games away.
They have been playing well, and were on a 5-match win streak, before losing their last game to the Milwaukee Bucks, on a match where they were winning by 20 points but then looked fatigued in the final stretch, which can be explained because it was their 3rd game in 4 nights.
They have had 2 days to rest and I believe they will be better now. This is a team that scores a lot of points, that shoots with a lot of efficiency and that combines talent with experience.
Jimmy Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins are the main players of a team that seems to have a very bright future.
Indiana Pacers vs Minnesota Timberwolves – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are 2 great teams and the truth is that there is a lot of talent.
This is a game for those who want to watch the NBA on New Year’s Eve and it should have some exciting ingredients.
I believe it will be close, but the T-Wolves are a team of a different level.
They are rested, and they probably will face the Pacers without Oladipo, who is still doubtful, so I believe that the Western team will deliver.
