2. LaMarcus Aldridge vs. Domantas Sabonis/Myles Turner

The Spurs should be getting a boost with LaMarcus Aldridge likely to return to the lineup. His return will make for some interesting matchups with the Pacers’ big front-court of All-Star Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner.

If San Antonio wants to win this game, they will need Aldridge to have a dominant performance. Offensively, Aldridge needs to take advantage of the weaknesses that Sabonis has on that side of the court. Defensively, he will need to contain Sabonis and Turner.

Indiana has relied heavily on Sabonis this offseason. If the Spurs can contain him, they should have a good chance to win this game.
