Nets vs. Pacers Game Info

Brooklyn Nets (42-20, 17-13 Away) vs. Indiana Pacers (29-32, 11-18 Home)
Date: Thursday, April 29, 2021
Time: 7 p.m. EST
Venue: Bankers Life Fieldhouse — Indianapolis, Ind.
Coverage: NBATV

The Nets have won four of their last five games, and they are looking to be back on track after stumbling for a bit. Kevin Durant returned to the starting lineup last game, and it was a relatively quiet performance by his standards. He attempted just seven shots, which was the third fewest on the team. Still, Durant finished with a 17-point double-double. Today Awesemo projects Durant to score over 25 points. It is Kyrie Irving that Awesemo projects will lead the Nets in scoring, at over 27 points. Underrated for the Nets has been Jeff Green, who put up 22 points and eight rebounds last game, raising his April average to 14 points and 4.1 rebounds. Awesemo is projecting him to go under this average today, though.

The Pacers continue to be beat up entering this game. Still, they have won three of their last four games. They are coming off a loss, however, where the team was missing Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner, Jeremy Lamb and Goga Bitadze. Sabonis and Turner are out again today, while Lamb and Bitadze are currently questionable.  The duo of Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert are projected to lead the team in scoring tonight, with Awesemo projecting over 20 points for both. Oshae Brissett has been a pleasant surprise during all of these injuries. He is projected for a solid stat line just above 13 points and eight rebounds. The Nets won the previous two meetings with the Pacers, so Indiana will look to prevent the sweep today.

Nets vs. Pacers NBA Betting Trends

  • Brooklyn is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games.
  • The total has hit the under in four of Brooklyn’s last six games.
  • Indiana is 2-4 ATS in its last six games.
  • The total has hit the over in seven of Indiana’s last 10 games.

Nets vs. Pacers Prediction

The Pacers have been obnoxiously bad against the spread at home, with an 8-21 record this season. With a thin frontcourt, which includes their best player out, this trend will continue tonight. The Pacers may be forced to go small, due to their available personnel. This favors Brooklyn, allowing them to put more playmakers on the floor and keep DeAndre Jordan off of it.

Prediction: Nets -8.5
