Pelicans, Pacers, to work on their own streak

Pelicans, Pacers, to work on their own streak

The New Orleans Pelicans and the Indiana Pacers will be working on their own respective streak coming into this match. It will be the Pacers hosting the Pelicans in this match on November 8, 2022, at 8:50 AM (GMT+8). The hosts are trying to extend their winning streak through this match, as the momentum is finally on their side. As for the visitors, they badly want to snap their losing streak as it is no good for them. Going into this match, the Pelicans have a slight edge against the Pacers on their last 10 matches. The visitors won six of their last 10 games, compared to the hosts’ four victories.

The hosts are currently with a record of 4-5, but before their winning streak, they managed to win over powerhouse teams. This team won against the Nets and the Heat, which surprised many. This only proves that this team is no longer a team to be taken lightly. If they managed to win against powerhouse teams, they will most likely win over other teams. As for the visitors, they are currently on the process of rebuilding the momentum they lost. They are now looking to end their losing streak on the road, and try to live up to the expectations of them. Having Zion Williamson back for their team bring so much pressure for them, as all eyes are on them. However, this pressure and expectation could be an additional motivation for them.

This squad is trying to bounce back from their loss, after losing against the Hawks on their last fixture. Before losing against the Hawks, they won over the Golden State Warriors, which could have been a huge boost to their morale. Now, this team is trying to bounce back from their loss versus the Hawks, which will give them their second win in their last three games. This team is averaging 118.1 points per game, 43.5% in the field. However, they continuously struggle defensively as they are giving up 113 points per game. In their last game, this team gave yp 124 points, so they need to improve their defense.

Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and CJ McCollm are all averaging over 21 points per game, leading the Pelicans. If they can play solid defense, it is already sure that this squad is a title contender this season.

This team on the other hand is eyeing for their second consecutive win after their loss against the Brooklyn Nets. They want to keep their momentum going, so they will do whatever it takes to win in this match. If their win against the Pacers, they will have their second consecutive win, and fourth in their last five games. They are currently averaging 115.8 points per game, and 46.3% when it comes to the field. Just like their opponent, defense is also their number one concern as they are giving up 117.6 points per game, and will be needing extensive effort in that field.

Buddy Hield is the one leading the Pacers with 25 points, while Bennedict Mathurin finished their last match with 23 points. They also get contribution from Tyrese Haliburton.
