Team Form

LA Clippers

Pitted against Eastern Conference leader, Indiana Pacers, the LA Clippers promise a down the wire match.

 

Doc Rivers and his boys are one of the strongest forces in the hard court today. They are one of the top 5 of the Western Conference with a record of 8 wins and 4 losses.

 

One of the things that should give the Pacers something to worry and think about is their scoring abilities. With an average of 108.7 points per match, it cannot be denied that the club has a roster of scoring machines that will generate scores at will. Definitely, this will be a great challenge to any opponent, not only the Pacers.

 

Three of the players that Pacers should look out for are Blake Griffin, who has an average score of 22.9. Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will also feature in the match.

 

Indiana Pacers

Boasting a 10-1 record in the Eastern Conference table, the Pacers are in prime form. The loss against Chicago Bulls was a total disappointment. Yet, the down the wire victory over New York Knicks—the ability shown to endure more than 48 hours of playing time, readily showed the team’s resilience and will to succeed.

Due to their almost perfect record, it is not surprising to see them dominate the table. They even outranked Miami Heat, which has already lost 3 of their matches. The Pacers play strong in their own territory. They brag a 6-0 winning streak. But it does not stop there. In terms of their away goals, the team has been successful as well. To note, their away record stands at 4-1.

 

Paul George is one of the players to watch out for in the upcoming match. One of the season’s VIP candidates, the young cager forced a deadlock against the Knicks and then left the match with a strong finish. George will most likely feature in the encounter against Clipper and just like what he did in most of his games, he will help the group in clinching another victory.
