THE MESSIN' WITH SASQUATCH KEYS TO THE GAME
3 is the magic number. The Pacers are on a 3 game win streak and the Kings are on a 3 game losing streak.
The Kings are, statistically speaking, one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NBA. They are terrible at just about everything. They are one of only 3 teams allowing over 100 PPG. They are one of only 3 teams that are averaging a margin of defeat in the double digits. They are just flat out bad. About the only thing they've been OK at, is rebounding, and the Pacers are better there. The Pacers are actually better at just about everything, yes even assists where the Pacers rank 28th in the NBA at 17.7. per game. The Kings are one of only 2 teams that average less assists per game than the Pacers and the Kings average a miserable and I mean truly miserable 14.6 assists per game, good for worst in the entire NBA.
It's also a good night for the Pacers to get off their offensive snide. The Kings have been maybe the worst defensive team in the NBA this season, and if you're the Pacers and you combine that with lots of time off and plenty of practice, I think we should see a good offensive showing tonight.
