Washington has been among the league’s best and hottest teams in 2017. They are now 17-3 in their last 20 games (best record in the league over that span) and only one loss in their last 11. They are looking very much like a team that will be a giving Cleveland a real run for their money come playoff time.
The offense has been especially potent averaging 112.8 PPG over those 20 games which is fifth best in the league. In the last 11 they’ve been even better averaging 115.5 PPG.
The recent run includes a tight 112-107 win over Indiana at home last Friday.
It’s part of the Pacers current slide that’s seen them lose to Cleveland, San Antonio and Milwaukee as well. Prior to that they had won seven in a row, putting them comfortably in a playoff spot.
They’ve allowed at least 110 points in each of the losses. The losing also coincides with the injury to power forward Thaddeus Young. Kevin Seraphin has picked up many of his minutes and while he has shot well -hitting at least 60% of his shots in the last three games-, certainly does not bring as much to the table defensively.
Indiana is 6-4 in their last ten scoring 106.4 PPG and allowing 104.1. They also played in Cleveland last night, making this game that much more of a challenge.
