Luckily for Cleveland, the Pacers are one of the worst teams in the NBA and have lost to the Washington Wizards, Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic in three of their last four games.
Darius Garland will be in Cleveland’s squad, which will give the team enough offensive power.
Let’s go in odds for this game via WynnBET:
The Pacers are playing extremely poorly at the end of the game, ranking 28th in the NBA defensively in their last 15 games, and I don’t expect things to change in tonight’s game against Cleveland.
The Cavaliers have taken a step back since the All-Star break, mostly due to injuries to Garland, Allen and LeVert, but they have some value put on just 3.5 points in this game.
Cleveland is a top defensive unit in the league, placing fourth in the NBA in defensive ratings this season. While losing Allen certainly hurts, the Cavs can turn to Evan Mobley, Lauri Markkanen and Kevin Love on the front lines. Unlike when they lost Garland last month, the Cavs have the depth to replace Allen on the roster.
Tyrese Haliburton and Malcolm Brogdon could pose some problems for Cleveland’s defense, but at the end of the day, the Pacers simply couldn’t stop anyone and have lost three of the NBA’s worst teams in four. their most recent match.
I’ll trust Cleveland as it competes for the playoff spot in the East.
Lean: Cavs -3.5 (-110)
