Tonight the Pacers put their home winning streak on the line as the Charlotte Hornets come to town. The Indiana Pacers have been playing great basketball as of late, and we expect a good showing against a struggling Charlotte Hornets team.

Tyrese Haliburton is looking every bit the all-star that he is while Bennedict Mathurin is starting to get back on track for rookie of the year. All of this on top of Buddy Hield shooting lights out from deep in recent weeks. Expect the Pacers’ firepower to be too much for the visiting Hornets.

Pacers Injury Report
Daniel Theis (knee) and Kendall Brown (leg) have been ruled out against Portland. Jalen Smith and Bennedict Mathurin are both day-to-day.

Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets
Indiana should be able to run away with this contest relatively comfortably. The Hornets are having a down year and likely are looking to next summers draft for ultimate relief. That coupled with the fact that the Pacers are at home, and we feel this should be a relatively easy win for the Pacers as long as they don’t overlook their opponents.

Pacers 124, Hornets 118
