IND vs PHI Dream11: The Eastern Conference seems to have acquired quite a lot of depth in recent season. In this Eastern Conference match-up, Indiana Pacers take on the Philadelphia 76ers. Pacers have a losing record now and have lost a wealth of close games so far. Meanwhile, the Philly squad has suffered a lot of absentees due to COVID-19 largely but still holds a strong record.
Indiana boasts of a talented backcourt in Brogdon and Duarte, backed up by a scintillating TJ McConnell. The frontline of Sabonis and Turner can also provide substantial returns but the wing position is a tad suspect in absence of TJ Warren. Philly has a host of top-notch shooters including Maxey, Curry, Milton, and Korkmaz paired up with a sturdy frontline of Harris, Embiid, Drummond, and Reed. The Sixers have done well without their All-Star guard Ben Simmons.
Host: Indiana Pacers
Visitors: Philadelphia 76ers
Match Timing: 14 November, @ 05:30 AM
Venue: Bankers Life FieldHouse
NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Pacers are right in the middle of the pack scoring-wise, compounding around 109 PPG every game with an appreciable FG% of 46.5, meaning the team can produce quality offense. Their lack of wins comes from the lack of defense, where the team squanders about 108 PPG and allows opponents to shoot 45%. However, the team boasts of a strong rebounding unit and allows third-least RPG at 42.5
76ers campaign has been marred because of COVID-19, prior to that the team stood at the top of East with an 8-2 record. The Philly outfit allows around 105 PPG, being number 10 or so in that regard. The team scored around 110 PPG range and both the offense and defense are better when Joel Embiid is on the floor. Philly needs some relief here from COVID-16 for sure.
