Indiana Pacers vs Los Angeles Lakers Preview
The Indiana Pacers have had their ups and downs throughout the season, but what's important to Nate Bjorkgren's team is that they secured the playoffs. The Pacers have almost certainly secured the first round of the playoffs with victories in the previous two games, and they can't go further than that. The Indiana Pacers are struggling with injuries this season, and against the Lakers, they will not count on 5 players.
The LA Lakers, on the other hand, had an impressive start to the season, but after the absence of LeBron James and Anthony Davis due to injuries, the team suffered a big drop in form so that they will fight for a place in the Top 6 in the West until the end of the regular season. However, the Lakers have improved their results lately, where they have won the previous three games in a row, and with that series, they have kept their hopes for life for the Top 6.

The Indiana Pacers have practically finished this regular season because they can't get in the Top 6. On the other hand, the LA Lakers still have a chance to finish this regular part in the Top 6 in the West, so I expect Frank Vogel's team to be additionally motivated before this duel and take another victory from this visit. If the Lakers want the Top 6 in the West, they will have to win here.
