The Indiana Pacers will face the Atlanta Hawks on January 12 at State Farm Arena.
After defeating the Wizards 112-104 in their last game, the Pacers have now won 8 of their previous 9 games. Despite Tyrese Haliburton’s injury, the Pacers defeated the Celtics on Monday, 133-131, despite the star point guard playing just 13 minutes. The Pacers, who are playing at one of the fastest speeds of the season with Haliburton commanding the way, will have to adapt to a new style of play as a result of his (hamstring) multiple-week absence. With Haliburton sidelined, Indiana might try to capitalize more on Myles Turner’s 6-foot-11 frame and inside presence. Turner finished the game with 18 points and 13 rebounds versus the Wizards. In their last game, Andrew Nembhard entered the starting lineup. With 2 points, 5 assists, and 5 turnovers, the second-year guard struggled, but he will get more playing time in the coming weeks.
Atlanta defeated the 76ers without Joel Embiid 139-132 at home in overtime to end a two-game losing streak. The Hawks, who lost to the Pacers just last week, will be looking for retribution in their 3rd game of a 5-game home stand. Indiana dominated Atlanta at Bankers Life FieldHouse, winning 150–116. Atlanta is currently surrendering an average of 132.6 points per contest over the last 5 games, following their defeat of 132 points by Philadelphia in their previous game. With 124.0 points permitted per game, the Hawks are currently ranked 29th out of 30 teams in the NBA in terms of defense. This season, Young has averaged 27.8 points and 11 assists, placing him 2nd in the NBA in assists and 7th in scoring. Dejounte Murray, his running partner, has been mentioned in trade rumors for the past few weeks. He has averaged at least 20.5 points per game in each of the previous 2 seasons, and now he is averaging 21.1.
