Indiana Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks Date and Time: Tuesday, March 23,2021 6:30 AM IST Venue: Milwaukee Bucks Arena, Phoenix, AZ Prediction: Indiana Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Indiana Pacers will head to Wisconsin for an Eastern Conference battle with the Milwaukee Bucks at Fiserv Forum on Monday night. The two squads are heading in opposite directions with the visiting team trending down and the home team on the rise.
The red-hot Milwaukee Bucks have flown under the radar this season because of their early-season struggles. But they have won 11 of their last 12 games and will be looking to win their seventh straight when they take on the Indiana Pacers.
The Indiana Pacers are hoping that their pair of wins versus the Heat over the weekend proves that they’ve turned the corner. In 15 of their 22 losses this campaign, they entered the second half with a lead only to see it dissipate. It’s a very concerning stat line, especially as it pertains to their ability to close out games.
The Milwaukee Bucks won a season-high sixth straight contest after taking down the San Antonio Spurs 120-113 on Saturday. A seventh straight is not out of reach when they face the Indiana Pacers in the second of their five-game homestand.
They are currently third in the Eastern Conference with a 27-14 record but are just a game behind the second-place Brooklyn Nets and two games back of the first-place Philadelphia 76ers. Just a couple of losses from the top two teams would vault the Milwaukee Bucks to the top spot once again.
On the other hand, a loss to the Indiana Pacers tonight will set them back by a game, which is why tonight’s matchup is crucial to the Bucks’ run to the top this campaign.
The Indiana Pacers are traveling from Miami and will be playing their third game in four nights. They’ve been on the road in 13 of their last 17 games and will play a 14th when they visit Milwaukee. Fatigue will play a huge factor heading into Monday’s matchup and it’s particularly made more difficult because the Pacers’ opponents are well-rested, on a roll and playing at home.
With the Milwaukee Bucks steamrolling over their foes, all signs point to a win for the home team and there’s no reason to expect a different outcome.
