No one is playing better with the playoffs approaching than the Indiana Pacers, who are on the verge of locking up homecourt advantage in the first round. The Pacers try to win their seventh straight game on Thursday night when they host the Bucks, who have lost four of five to fall 2 1/2 games out of the Eastern Conference’s eighth spot.
Indiana (40-22) has won 10 of its 11 games this month to put itself comfortably in third place in the East. The Pacers now just need one more win coupled with an Atlanta loss to secure that No. 3 seed. I look for Indiana to win their seventh straight in blowout fashion.
Milwaukee is simply folding under the pressure of trying to make the playoffs. They let Washington shoot 55.7 percent last night in a 121-112 road loss to the Wizards. “Wrong time to have a bad game,” Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles said. “It’s an absolute must-win for us. We have to find a way to get that game.” Now deflated from the loss, I don’t see the Bucks being able to bounce back emotionally tonight.
Indiana has won four straight over Milwaukee, with three of those wins coming on the road. They won 125-104 at Milwaukee on March 24th followed by a 105-99 road victory again on April 14th. This is simply a tough match-up for the Bucks because they don’t have the size to be able to defend the Pacers. Indiana has averaged 115.0 points/game in their two wins over the Bucks this season. Bet the Pacers Thursday.
