The Indiana Pacers finally snapped their four-game losing streak Monday night at home against the Washington Wizards, gaining a bit of momentum that they hope could carry over to the next string of games, as the team attempts to improve their lackluster 10-16 record so far.

While they will enter Wednesday’s contest as favorites over the New York Knicks, which are fatigued coming off a road victory over the San Antonio Spurs, the Knicks have already trumped them early in the season. Worse for Indy, the team has recently been at the forefront of the rumor mill, as the franchise has been reported to be inching closer to a rebuild.

On the season, the Pacers are 7-6 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse and 6-12 against the East while the Knicks are 7-4 on the road and 8-10 against conference foes. Indiana ranks 16th in offensive rating and 14th in defensive rating while New York sits at 13th and 22nd, respectively, on the same departments.

Pacers Injury Report

TJ McConnell (wrist) is expected to miss most of, if not the entire season after a hand surgery. Justin Holiday (health and safety protocols) has been ruled out against Miami. TJ Warren (left foot) remains out for this game.

Indiana Pacers vs New York Knicks Prediction

The Pacers have a more rested squad, and arguably more balance, but the Knicks, despite flashing inconsistencies left and right in their campaign so far, match up pretty well against the Blue and Gold. Their bench unit is also statistically one of the best in the NBA.

That being said, Indiana is dealing with a heavy dose of off-court distractions following recent news. Meanwhile, New York will be determined to get the job done and prove that their previous comeback win was no fluke. Expect them to come out roaring in this one, especially after getting hot from everywhere against San Antonio.
