Venue – Bankers Life Fieldhouse
CHA vs IND Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Indiana Lakers will be looking for their 8th win in 11 games when they host a resurgent Charlotte Hornets in an NBA match at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, in Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, United States, on Monday morning (IST).
Charlotte Hornets are just about doing enough at the moment to hold on to the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They recorded a 114-95 win over Sacramento Kings to improve season record to 21-23 in the regular season.
But inconsistency has marred Hornets all season. Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards, and Orlando Magic are at a maximum three games away from them as things stand in the East. So any significant losing streak could put them on a perilous journey south.
While Indiana Pacers are coming into this match after losing 96-120 to Philadelphia 76ers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. It was their 3rd loss in the last six games, but only fourth in the last 13 matches. So the team is in good form, and their ranking in the Eastern Conference is an indicator of how good the season they have had so far.
Regular Season Record-
Indiana Pacers: W-29, L-15
Charlotte Hornets: W-21, L-23
Players to watch out for:
Victor Oladipo – Indiana Pacers are enjoying a very good season and its down to the collective efforts of the team. No Pacers’ player is averaging in the 20s this season with their best player Victor Oladipo going for 19.3 points per game so far.
Bojan Bogdanovic – The 2nd in the list for Pacers is the 29-year-old small forward Bojan Bogdanovic. His average for the season is 16.1 points per game. The Yugoslavia born star is an indispensable part of Indiana’s squad.
Kemba Walker – Charlotte Hornets’ return doesn’t suffice well with the numbers that Kemba Walker is producing this season. Even his alien looking efforts, the match where he dropped his career high, and which rose as high as 60 points, ended in a defeat only. Hornets must raise their game as a team to give him a chance to play in the playoffs this season.
For the record, the 28-year-old is averaging 25.2 points per game this season.
Jeremy Lamb – Scored 14 points in the last match as Hornets beat Phoenix Suns. The 2012 1st round pick is averaging 15.2 points, by far his best efforts so far in a season. His season best is 31 points which he dropped against Brooklyn Nets.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Indiana Pacers may have lost their last game, but it was just the third time they dropped a game in the last 10 matches. And considering this is a home game for them, the chances to get back to winning ways look brightly as they possess a 15-6 record in home matches this season.
Charlotte Hornets, on the other hand, are 6-15 on the road but have won the last two coming into this match. They should fancy their chances based on their form.
However, an Indiana Pacers win is our call.
