SCOUT­ING RE­PORT

Sunday Sports - - PACERS AT RAPTORS -

The Pac­ers and Hous­ton Rock­ets are the hottest teams in the NBA right now, each hav­ing won six in a row. The Pac­ers have reeled off 13 wins in their past 15. The Pac­ers don’t score a ton, av­er­ag­ing 107.8 a game for 23rd in the NBA but they do de­fend bet­ter than any­one with the league’s best mark of al­low­ing just 101.4 a night. That’s a Nate McMil­lan sta­ple and with Vic­tor Oladipo quickly de­vel­op­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for mak­ing big-game win­ners, of­ten that de­fence is more than enough to off­set the lim­ited of­fence.
