The Indiana Pacers are set to host the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night.

Hornets lacking offensive production behind Kemba Walker

The Hornets have continued to hover around the .500 mark on the season that has kept them in the back end of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. Charlotte has split their last 10 games that have seen them struggle to push forward in any significant matter on the court this year. It has largely been behind the play of All-Star point guard Kemba Walker, who has been putting together a career-best campaign as he’s averaging a career-best 25.1 points per contest along with shooting 43.5 percent from the field and 5.7 assists per contest. Walker has picked it up in the last five games as he’s averaging 31.8 points per contest while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor and 46.4 percent from beyond the arc along with 7.2 assists and 5.2 rebounds over the stretch. This has seen him record more than 30 points in each of the last four games while hitting at least four 3-pointers in each contest over that span.

In fact, his four consecutive 30-point outings tie the longest stretch of such performances of his career. However, the Hornets have struggled to find consistent production behind as the year has worn on. This has been evident by this 30-point streak as the team holds a 2-2 record over that span that hasn’t allowed them to take any significant steps forward this year. Walker is one of the league’s most dynamic scorers, but the lack of true offensive firepower behind him has limited the amount of impact he has been able to have on the court toward pushing his team forward. The Hornets currently rank 16th in the league tied for 16th in the league with 111.5 points per contest while being 19th shooting 45.3 percent from the floor. This lack of a balanced offensive attack should see the Pacers’ defense settle in and dictate how Monday’s game will unfold.

Pacers hoping to stay hot at home

Despite the loss of All-Star guard Victor Oladipo for the season due to a knee injury, the Pacers have continued to trend forward holding one of the best marks in the Eastern Conference. They have been able to push forward with balanced play on both ends of the floor. The Pacers have continued to hit their stride over the last 10 games grabbing six wins over that span including the last five straight contest. During their current winning streak, the Pacers have averaged 112.2 points on 51.0 percent from the floor and 40.3 percent from beyond the arc while outscoring their opponents by an average of 18.0 points per contest. It has been largely fueled by their play defensive as they have held their opponents to 94.2 points per contest while forcing 18.8 turnovers and averaged 25.4 points off turnovers per game. This includes a season-best performance in the win over the Los Angeles Lakers where they set season highs in points (136), field goals made (56), 3-pointers (19, tying the franchise record) and assists (37) in its largest win of the season (42).

Meanwhile, the Pacers are currently 24-1 when scoring 110 or more points and 20-1 when shooting 50.0 percent or better from the field. This includes them having won 11 games by 20 or more points this season with six of them coming by at least 25 points on their home floor. They have recorded at least 30 assists in 15 games where they hold a 13-2 record. Indiana has also been one of the top teams in the league at home this season as they hold a 21-7 record at home this season with the last three contests each coming at home. Their calling card throughout the year has been their play defensive as they have arguably been the best team in the league in that regard. The Pacers currently are allowing the fewest points this season at 103.3 per game. They hare are also 17-1 this season when holding opponents to 97 or fewer points. There balanced production on both ends of the floor along with their stout play defensive should see them push forward for another convincing win on their home floor over the Hornets.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Pacers may be moving forward in the season without the services of Oladipo, but they have proven to have a balanced play on both ends of the floor. This should continue on their home floor against the Hornets that could be in store for a strong defensive outing. Charlotte is also 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Indiana.

Prediction: Indiana -5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Pacers’ defense should set the tone in this contest that is among the best in the league. The Hornets’ approach offensive to roll behind Walker will come to their detriment against arguably the best defense in the league. What is also interesting to note is that the under is 23-7 in the last 30 meetings between both teams in Indiana

Prediction: Under 217.5
