Philadelphia 76ers vs Indiana Pacers. The NBA pick is the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers struggled against the Cavs in 2 games without Cleveland’s Kevin Love on the floor. They struggled in rebounding with poor defensive plays. The 76ers took out the Celtics and had Embiid and Harris leading the way on both offense and defense. Indiana is too shaky to trust while Philly already showed us they are ready for this season. The Pacers will outrun the 76ers projected at 114-109.
