It should be an exciting affair when the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers face off on Tuesday night. The Bulls are currently 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 22-24 overall record while on a three-game win streak. The Pacers have been on a down streak as of late, falling to ninth in the Eastern Conference with a 23-25 overall record while being on a seven-game losing streak.

The Indiana Pacers' recent run of poor form has come off the back of their dreadful defense. They're allowing 123.7 points per game on 49.9% from the field and 43.2% from three through their seven-game losing streak. On the other hand, the Bulls are allowing just 108.6 points per game on 45.1% from the field and 32.2% from the three-point range.

The Bulls may be on the second leg of a back-to-back, but their recent run of offensive versatility and defense pushes this game in their favor. While the Pacers have been scrappy, they've looked particularly vulnerable with Tyrese Haliburton unavailable. We're taking the Bulls in this matchup.

In one of the Eastern Conference's most exciting rivalries, the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat face off. The Boston Celtics remain at the top of the Eastern Conference, owning a 35-13 overall record and a 17-8 road record. The Miami Heat are sixth in the East, with a 26-22 overall record and a 15-9 home record.

The Boston Celtics may be coming off of a loss in their last game, but otherwise, they are 9-1 over their last 10 games. Over the course of their win streak, the Celtics have averaged 118.3 points per game on a plus-9.7 point differential on 46.5% from the field and 37.0% from three-point range. The Heat are a more modest 6-4 over their last 10 games, and it's been their defense that's helped their success as usual. Over their last 10 games, the Heat have allowed just 104.8 points per game on 46.9% from the field and 36.8% from three-point range.

Through three meetings this season, the Boston Celtics are 2-1 against the Miami Heat. The Celtics should see the return of their key playmakers to the lineup in this game, and the scoring prowess of Tatum and Brown should hold as it has all season. Take the Celtics, even if Miami can make this a low-scoring affair.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks are both looking to improve their standing in the Eastern Conference. The New York Knicks are currently seventh in the Eastern Conference with a 25-23 overall record and a surprisingly poor 11-13 record at home. The Cleveland Cavaliers are fifth in the East with a 29-19 overall record and a 9-14 road record.

The Knicks are trying to rebound from their current four-game losing streak. Over the course of that run the Knicks have allowed their opponents to score 125.8 points per game on 46.5% from the field and 37.0% from three-point range. The Cavaliers have had similar issues through their recent 2-3 run of form, allowing 110.0 points per game while allowing 13.4 threes per game on 39.2% from the field and 49.1% shooting overall.

The Knicks' defense has really struggled with Mitchell Robinson out due to injury. In a scoring battle alone, New York have been exposed by their opponents. Given New York aren't one of the NBA's premiere shooting teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers should be able to establish their defensive presence and hold off their opponents.
