Prediction

The Pacers have been good so far offensively as they're averaging over 120 points per game in their last 2 games but they play zero defense and are allowing 121 points per game so far this season. The Nets haven't looked great so far this season and this is also another team who's not playing any defense at all. Seth Curry returned to the court but had a rough night and went scoreless in 18 minutes played. I don't know how the Nets are still so heavy favorites but the best play for me on this game is the over as both teams score tons of points and play zero defense.
