Game Preview


On January 19, the Portland Trail Blazers (11-29) play the Indiana Pacers (24-17) at Moda Center.


The Indiana Pacers have continued to play well, winning 4 of their previous 6 games in all. After a tough 126-121 away victory over the Kings in their last game, they are still on a winning streak. TJ McConnell led the way with 20 points and 10 assists, while Bennedict Mathurin scored 25 points. With an NBA-best average of 125.6 points per game, 8.9 points more than Portland usually gives up, the Pacers have been an offensive force. Their defensive efforts have been difficult, though, as they rank 2nd to last in the league with an average of 123.5 points allowed per game. The Pacers have notably shown greater weakness away from home, giving up 5.7 more points per game. Regarding injuries, Tyrese Haliburton, Aaron Nesmith, and Obadiah Toppin are in doubtful status.



The Portland Trail Blazers, on the other hand, have had a difficult run, having dropped 7 of their previous 9 matches. They do, however, want to reverse the trend and pick up steam after defeating the Nets 105-103 in their last game. With 30 points on 14 of 26 shooting, Jerami Grant led the way, and Anfernee Simons chipped in with 20 points. Portland’s offensive woes are evident in their average of 107.2 points per game, which is 15.2 points less than what Indiana usually allows and puts them at the bottom of the NBA. The Trail Blazers have performed somewhat better on defense, giving up 116.7 points per game to rank 19th in the league. Robert Williams III (right knee torn ligament), Moses Brown (left shoulder surgery), and Shaedon Sharpe (lower abdominal strain) are all designated as out for this match by the Trail Blazers. Deandre Ayton is likely suffering from a knee issue.
