Spurs vs Pacers Scrimmage preview
The Spurs have used the practice game to feed playing minutes to their young brigade (Derrick White, Dejounte Murray, and Lonnie Walker IV). Indiana Pacers will be massively short-handed going into the seeding games, as forward Domantas Sabonis is sidelined due to his foot injury and the return of the player is not clear.
San Antonio Spurs have lost both the previous games against Milwaukee Bucks (92-113) and Brooklyn Nets (119-124). They will want to register a win ahead of the seeding games but it won’t be easy as Pacers have won both the practice matches.
Indiana Pacers won against Portland Trail Blazers (91-88) and Dallas Mavericks (118-111). The team is high on confidence and will go as favorites for today’s match. However, they’ll need to rejig their team combination and strategy, now that Sabonis has been ruled out.
