Coming off a lengthy break, the Indiana Pacers managed to pull off an upset last Friday night, upending the Miami Heat in a slugfest, 101-99, to claim their fourth win of the season. Buddy Hield, Bennedict Mathurin, and Tyrese Haliburton combined for 70 markers to guide the hosts to victory.

Now, the Pacers await the young but lethal Pelicans at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Led by Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and CJ McCollum, New Orleans is one of the biggest dark horses in the league as they start to flirt with a fully healthy squad.

Last season, both teams split the season series, with each club winning apiece. Indiana leads the all-time series, 26-18, though New Orleans has won four of the last six meetings between them.

Indiana Pacers vs New Orleans Pelicans Prediction

On paper, the Pelicans clearly have the talent advantage. They also trot out the better offense (eighth overall to the Pacers’ 12th) and defense (10th overall to the Pacers’ 26th). Still, expect this one to be a close contest all throughout, with some trap game potential to New Orleans’ disadvantage.
