Pacers, on a hot streak going against the Hornets

The Indiana Pacers and the Charlotte Hornets meet on November 17, 2022, at 8:00 AM (GMT+8) when the Hornets host the Pacers. Despite having the home advantage, the Hornets cannot still guarantee a win. The hosts are currently in a four-game losing streak at home, which is why they are not at the advantage despite being at home. As for the visitors, they had a winning streak at home before travelling to Charlotte. With that, they are coming into this game in a hot form, being at their best in this match.

In addition to them winning three of their four home games, the Pacers won five of their last seven games, but luckily, they were able to caught up in their recent games. They are now at 6-6, so they need to take advantage of their hot streak to win this match. The Pacers are looking to continue going back after a slow start this season. As for the Hornets, they are in a bad position after losing eight of their last nine games. They have been very unfortunate this season and encountered numerous difficulties. As they have another chance on this game, they are hoping to finally turn things around through this game.

The Hornets are not having their best season this year as they are one of the teams at the bottom of the standings. They had a strong start actually, winning three of their first six games, but their misfortunes came after that. They are now experiencing an eight-game losing streak, which made them one of the worst team this season. This is a little expected already as their star guard, LaMelo Ball is not with them for 13 games already. Luckily, LaMelo finally came back, but loss are the outcomes of his return. Right now, they are 25th in the league offensively with 108.9 points per game. Defensively, they are not doing so well also as they are in the 26th, allowing 117.2 points per game.

Now that LaMelo Ball is back for the Hornets, and they are in-need of his production, following their current results. His point production might be the key for the Hornets to turn around their recent results. Terry Rozier is currently the one leading the Hornets averaging 21.3 points per game. He is followed by Kelly Oubre Jr. with 18.3 points per game, followed by Gordon Hayward. However, Hayward recently experienced an injury and is questionable in this game.

This squad heads to the home of the Hornets in a hot streak right now, despite their slow start this season. They were finally able to caught up and bring out their game in their recent results. Winning five out of their seven games, including three from their last four-home game matches. They are also coming from a win against the Raptors that concluded their four straight home games. The Pacers are a revelation in the NBA today because of how fast-paced they are playing right now. When it comes to three-pointers, they are also one of the best, sitting behind the Warriors and the Celtics. If they are able to continue playing this way, they might stand a chance in the title. They are third offensively with 117.3 points per game and 18th defensively, allowing 114.1 points per game.

Tyrese Haliburton is the who leads the Pacers with an average of 21.6 points per game followed by Bennedict Mathurin with 20.4 points per game.
