After cruising past the previously conference-leading Chicago Bulls on the road, the Indiana Pacers return to the Circle City for a three-game homestand, beginning with their first meeting of the season with the star-studded Los Angeles Lakers, which, despite being tabbed as title favorites, have been struggling to begin the season.

The Lakers have the overwhelming talent advantage on paper, but the Pacers have momentum, coming off two straight wins via blowouts after a horrendous stretch on the road and are the better rested team, with LA on tired legs after succumbing to the Knicks last night in a physical contest.

On the season, the Pacers are 5-2 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse and 4-2 against the West while the Lakers are 2-5 on the road and 4-4 against the East. Indiana ranks 14th in offensive rating and 12th in defensive rating while Los Angeles sits at 25th and 20th, respectively, on the same departments.

Pacers Injury Report

With Isaiah Jackson now back with the team, TJ Warren (left foot) is the only one who remains out. No other injuries have been reported at this point.

Indiana Pacers vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction

On the second leg of a back-to-back, the aging Lakers are more susceptible despite their talented roster. They will welcome LeBron James back after a one-game absence due to a suspension, but their poor play so far on the road will only exacerbate their chances against the Pacers, who have loads of momentum on both ends of the court.

Indiana has been rather complacent this season after tallying a win streak, but they have been solid at the Fieldhouse. They also have a bunch of options to slow down the Lakers’ Big Three. I expect LA to make this a tight game for the most part with their sheer talent, but the Pacers should be able to pull away in the fourth and secure their ninth win.
