The Los Angeles Clippers invade Bankers Life Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night.
The Clippers will be looking to bounce back from their first road loss of the season after they fell to the Pistons in a 108-97 defeat on Friday. Blake Griffin and JJ Redick led the team in scoring with 24 points each, Jamal Crawford added 14 points off the bench while Chris Paul steered the offense with eight points and 15 assists, but the Clippers just couldn't get over the line despite cutting an 18-point third quarter deficit to just two points entering the fourth quarter. Despite the loss, Los Angeles is still an impressive 14-3 overall and 7-1 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pacers have lost three of their last five but they'll be feeling a little better after blowing past the lowly Nets in a 118-97 home win on Friday. Glenn Robinson III stepped into the starting lineup for the injured Paul George (sore back) and led the team with 20 points, Rodney Stuckey added 18 points while Myles Turner and Al Jefferson chipped in with 16 points apiece as the Pacers cruised past the struggling Nets. With the win, Indiana improves to 8-9 on the season and 7-4 at home where they had lost three straight before Friday's win.
Looking at the betting trends, the Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a loss of more than 10 points and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall, while the Pacers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a win of more than 10 points and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall.
Head to head, the Clippers are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
The Clippers will be eager to atone for their loss on Friday and I'm sure they'll be good enough to get the win in this one, but this just seems like too many points to be giving a Pacers team capable of pulling off the upset.
