On January 30, at TD Garden, the Indiana Pacers (27-20) will travel to face the Boston Celtics (36-11) in an attempt to extend their 3-game winning streak.
After losing their previous 2 home games, Boston overcame the New Orleans Pelicans in their last game to secure a much-needed victory. The best team in the NBA was down 6 points going into the 4th quarter, but they rallied to win by 6 points in the end. Boston now has a fantastic home record of 21 wins and just 2 losses after the victory. They are playing the 3rd game in the last 4 days and the second leg of a back-to-back, so they will have to contend with exhaustion here. Boston’s home game has spared them from travel tiredness, which is their lone saving grace. Kristaps Porzingis was sidelined by the Boston Celtics on Monday, the first game of a back-to-back set. The Celtics will probably rest Al Horford, so he will probably start at center again.
After defeating the Grizzlies 116-110 in their last game, the Pacers enter this game with a 3-game winning streak. The most remarkable thing about Indiana’s winning run is that they’ve managed to do it without the services of standout player Tyrese Haliburton. The 23-year-old has stated he will almost definitely return for this game after exercising on Monday, which will provide the Pacers a significant advantage in this contest. With Haliburton in the starting lineup, the Pacers are 20-14, and his offensive contributions are crucial to the team’s success. Haliburton is an All-Star point guard. Indiana’s All-Star starter will start the game for the Pacers if he is cleared to play. If not, TJ McConnell or Andrew Nembhard might be asked to lead by Rick Carlisle. Myles Turner missed the Pacers’ most recent game because of spasms in his mid-back. Jalen Smith might replace him if he stays out of commission.
