Pelicans Analysis: They’ve won 3 in last 5

The Pelicans had lost their previous 2 games in a row going into their contest on Tuesday, where they won versus the Knicks 115-92. Despite being in the wrong direction, they were tied for 5th place in the Western Conference. Dyson Daniels (knee) and Jose Alvarado (suspended) were the only players who did not participate, while both CJ McCollum and Zion Williamson were decisions made at the game. McCollum and Williamson might get some rest for this coming game. As it stands, this squad, which has the 6th-best defensive rating in the league, is in that situation. Only one team forces a worse 3-point percentage while giving up more 3-point attempts per game. Despite limiting opponents to the eighth-lowest percentage of shot attempts that land within 5 feet of the basket, New Orleans ranks 22nd in terms of rim defense.


Pacers Analysis: Just lost a 3-game winning run

In their last game, Indiana took on the Raptors for the 3rd time. They suffered a 130-122 defeat at home against them. That demonstrates the issue with the Pacers, who climbed to the 26th spot in the defensive rating after being ranked 29th in November. Two teams only give up more points every contest. Their ability to allow the fewest 3-point attempts per contest is their best asset. In response, they have given up the most rim shots this season. Indiana ranks 30th (last) in midrange defense and 21st in three-point defense. In terms of defensive rebounding %, they rank 27th, turnover percentage is 15th, and free throw attempts allowed is 29th.
