After another embarrassing loss last time at the hands of the rebuilding Pistons, the Indiana Pacers will not be getting any consolations, as they are on deck for a meeting with the red-hot Charlotte Hornets, which have won four straight contest, for their road trip finale.

This will be the second meeting between both teams this season, with the Hornets starting off their campaign with a wild comeback at the expense of the Pacers for their season opener last month. Charlotte has had Indiana’s number recently, as they have won three straight against the Blue and Gold dating back to last season.

On the season, the Pacers are 2-8 on the road and 3-8 against the East while the Hornets are 5-2 at home and 6-3 against the East. Indiana ranks 16th in offensive rating and 16th in defensive rating while Charlotte ranks 13th and 23rd, respectively, in the same departments.

Pacers Injury Report

Chris Duarte‘s status for Friday night remains uncertain as he continues to deal with shoulder soreness, though the safe bet is that the coaching staff will save him for the homestand. Isaiah Jackson is not with the team due to his stint with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. TJ Warren (left foot) remains out.

Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets Prediction

The Indiana Pacers have simply struggled at catching any semblance of rhythm offensively in their two previous losses, mustering a measly 173 points combined. That is a recipe for disaster against the Charlotte Hornets, which averages the second-most points per game this season at 112.3 points per contest, a mark behind only the league-leading Golden State Warriors.

With the Hornets’ breakneck pace and prolific scoring attack presenting a lengthy checklist of problems for the Pacers, Charlotte could find itself on the driver’s seat early, especially if Indiana misses the services of Duarte once again and gets off to another glacial start offensively. Given the urgency of snapping a losing streak, I want to predict a sweet victory for the Blue and Gold, but for the sake of objectivity (and a wishful jinx), I think the Hornets take this one at home in a high-scoring affair.
