After splitting their games, 2-2, in training camp, the Indiana Pacers now begin their 2022-23 campaign at home against the Washington Wizards to kick off a troika of contests at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse before going on the road.

The Pacers would surely love to reward fans with a victory on day one to sweeten a season otherwise expected by most to be lacking in the wins department. However, the Wizards, while far from contenders, are looking to win now, and led by Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis, you never know what you will get from their squad. Ultimately, this should be an entertaining slugfest.

Last season, the Pacers and Wizards split their season matchup, with both teams notching two wins apiece at home. Indiana leads the all-time series, 103-84, though Washington is the latest victor between the clubs.

Indiana Pacers vs Washington Wizards Prediction

Virtually all of Washington’s key players are expected to suit up for this game. While the Pacers should be pretty motivated to start the season off on a good note, playing in front of the home crowd may not be enough to overcome their early season, rust-caused struggles from downtown. The safer bet is on the Wizards to win a narrow one.
