How do the Indiana Pacers and Sixers compare in pace?
Since acquiring Harden, the Sixers have sped up quite a bit but they’re still just 19th in the league in pace over the last 10 games — compared to 26th on the year. Meanwhile, the Pacers are just 13th in the league in pace in that span, so neither one of these teams will really look to push things too much.
Are the Indiana Pacers out of playoff contention?
The Pacers have already been eliminated from playoff contention, sitting 13th in the East. They’ve lost 7 games in a row and are 2-8 in their last 10, only covering the spread three times in that stretch. Injuries have plagued the Pacers this season and they’ll be very shorthanded Tuesday against the Sixers.
