The Golden State Warriors travel to Bankers Life Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers tonight.
The undefeated Warriors were always red-hot favorites against the Nets who have just five wins on the season, but there were definitely some nervous moments in Sunday's 114-98 win at Brooklyn. Stephen Curry led the team with 28 points, Draymond Green added 22 while Klay Thompson had 21 as the Warriors found themselves down 75-70 late in the third quarter after leading by as many as 17 points in the first. With yet another win, Golden State improve to a perfect 22-0 on the season and 12-0 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pacers had won six straight before losing their last two games including a 122-119 overtime defeat at Utah on Saturday. Paul George had a monster game of 48 points on 15 of 27 shooting with eight 3-pointers while Rodney Stuckey added 23 points off the bench, but the Pacers just couldn't take advantage of a Jazz team missing two of their main big men. Monta Ellis started despite being questionable with a right shoulder contusion but he could only manage six points on two of 11 shooting. With the loss, Indiana falls to 12-7 on the season and 6-5 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games, while the Pacers are 9-0 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last six home games.
Head to head, the Warriors are 8-20 ATS int he last 28 meetings and just 2-12 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Indiana.
The Pacers would have definitely had this fixture circled on their calendar but there is just no betting against the Warriors the way they've been playing. Take the Warriors to stay undefeated and cover the small spread.
