The Golden State Warriors and the Indiana Pacers duke it out at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Thursday night. Here’s a Warriors vs Pacers Prediction.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have been in decent shape as they've won four of their past five games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the 76ers in a 127-104 road win last night. Andrew Wiggins led the team with 21 points and 10 rebounds, Jonathan Kuminga and Klay Thompson each scored 18 points while Lester Quinones chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Warriors shot 50 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they scored just 15 points in the first quarter, but they responded with 33 points in the second quarter and completely ran away with it in the second half to make it look easy in the end. The Warriors will meet the Suns after this one.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in decent shape as they've won five of their last eight games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after outlasting the Rockets in a 132-129 home win on Tuesday. Pascal Siakam led the team with 29 points on 11 of 16 shooting, Myles Turner added 21 points on eight of 16 shooting while Tyrese Haliburton tallied 18 points with seven assists. As a team, the Pacers shot a sizzling 62 percent from the field and 15 of 32 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 38 points in the third quarter to turn a 10-point deficit into a 14-point lead which was just enough to hold off a late rally from the Rockets in the fourth quarter. The Pacers will face the Knicks after this game.

Warriors vs Pacers Prediction

The Warriors are still shorthanded with Gary Payton and Chris Paul both out, while the Pacers are keeping eyes on Bennedict Mathurin, Jalen Smith and Tyrese Haliburton who are all questionable. The Warriors are starting to heat up with four wins in their past five outings, and they could be up against a depleted Pacers team missing some of their best players. This is a game where you want to check the lineups before tip off, but assuming that the Pacers are missing a player or two, I'll go with the Warriors to win despite playing their second game of a back to back set.
