The Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks duke it out at the State Farm Arena on Friday night. Here’s a Pacers vs Hawks Prediction.

Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers have been in red-hot form as they've won eight of their last nine games overall and they will be gunning for a third straight victory after taking down the Wizards in a 112-104 home win on Wednesday. Myles Turner led the team with 18 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, Bruce Brown and Bennedict Mathurin scored 16 points each while Obi Toppin chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Pacers shot 44 percent from the field and eight of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Wizards and trailed going into halftime, before they poured in 35 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 17 points.

Indiana Pacers Player Facts

  • Myles Turner ranks T4th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (2.0) this season.
  • Bruce Brown ranks T19th amongst qualified Forwards for FT% (83.5%) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in decent shape as they've won three of their past five games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after outlasting the 76ers in a 139-132 overtime win on Wednesday. Trae Young led the team with 28 points and 11 assists, Jalen Johnson added 25 points with 16 rebounds and seven assists while Onyeka Okongwu chipped in with 19 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Hawks shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line as they missed on a crucial chance to go win the game in regulation as Young missed a free throw with just 12.0 seconds left on the clock, before they played great defense to hold the 76ers to just seven points in overtime to earn the win.

Atlanta Hawks Player Facts

  • Jalen Johnson ranks 11th amongst qualified players for FG% (58.5%) this season.
  • Dejounte Murray ranks 6th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.4) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Pacers rank 1st in the league for points per game this season (126.6).
  • The Pacers rank 1st in the league for assists per game this season (30.9).

Pacers vs Hawks Prediction

The Pacers are still missing Tyrese Haliburton and Jalen Smith, while the Hawks are still without Garrison Matthews, Clint Capela and Wesley Matthews. The Hawks are slowly turning things around and they looked good in their overtime win on Wednesday, but the Pacers have definitely been the more consistent team in better shape, so I'll back them to get the job done without their best player.
