Bet here and win
Indiana Pacers are showing a very high level of play for the second year in a row, especially when it comes to playing on their own half of the court. This year’s playoffs are back with confidence, despite the fact that Victor Oladipo missed most of the season. The defender has played only eleven games so far, eight of which are at the start. At the same time, his performance is clearly lower than we would like.
Nevertheless, the team is fifth in the Eastern table, with thirty-eight victories and twenty-five defeats. Just like last year. The main advantage of the team is the game in defense. So now Nate McMillan’s players are in seventh place in the league in terms of defensive ranking. Apart from that, it should be noted that Pacers play perfectly under the net. The presence of two excellent centers in the face of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis gives the club an advantage over the weaker teams.
Dallas Maverkis is a team that this year became unexpectedly strong. In many ways, it is certainly the merit of Luca Doncic, who at the age of twenty is one of the three players with the highest chances of winning the title of most valuable player. In addition, there is still Kristaps Porzingis in Dallas, who at least not yet plays at his previous level, but in some places we see some examples of his bright game, which also helps Dallas.
At the moment Rick Carlisle’s players are in seventh place in their conference, with thirty-nine wins and twenty-five losses. In this case, Dallas has the most productive attack in the league, which can be considered the result of an excellent built system Carlisle, which is primarily twisted around Luka Doncic.
