Golden State Warriors vs. Indiana Pacers Predictions

The Warriors live and die with Steph Curry shooting the basketball. With the all-time three-point record still lingering, Curry has clearly been pressed – and so has the rest of the team. In his attempt to pass Ray Allen, Curry has struggled recently from 3, as has his teammates.

The Warriors can’t afford to take the Pacers lightly, especially as good as Indy has been at home. They need more from both Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins, or the Warriors are going to lose their second straight game on the road. Curry can’t play the post, so someone on the Warriors on top of Green will have to slow down Domantas Sabonis.

It’s not just Sabonis who has picked things up during this win streak, in fact credit Caris LeVert more than anyone. The Pacers are starting to get scoring on multiple levels, but if Sabonis can consistently get to the basket – and free throw line – the Pacers have a shot at keeping this one close. <.p>

Unfortunately for Indy, the Warriors can only slump for so long with Curry and if he’s back on his mark it spells trouble for the Pacers. Malcolm Brogdon can provide the x-factor for the Pacers but is going to need to pour in some points to keep up with Steph.
