Open Game Thread #77: Pacers vs. Bucks

New, comments

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which focuses on the thread holding the Pacers' playoff hopes alive. With Atlanta's win over Philly last night, the Pacers are 3.5 behind the Hawks with six games to play. Even if they win out, the Pacers need the Hawks to lose to the Knicks or Heat, let alone the Magic and a Celtics team that has clinched the top spot in the playoffs. One thing's for sure, the Hawks have made my W/L projections moot by winning a second game that I was hoping they'd lose.

Check out Brew Hoop for the Bucks' perspective on the game tonight.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 96.0(3rd) 107.8(18th) 109.3(16th)
MIL 89.9(16th) 106.6(21st) 113.9(29th)
