The Indiana Pacers travel to the US Airways Center to take on the Phoenix Suns tonight.
The Indiana Pacers are only 7-10 on the season so far, but that's actually pretty impressive considering the long list of injuries they've had to endure. On Saturday, the Pacers received a major boost when they found out that David West was fit enough to make his season debut, but his 14 points in 24 minutes certainly wasn't enough to life the Pacers over the Cavaliers who jumped all over them early, before cruising in the fourth quarter. The Pacers have alternated wins and losses in their last five games and we probably won't be seeing any winning consistency until Roy Hibbert and George Hill finally return to the court.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns were in a bit of form after they won five games in six outings, but they've since loss their last two, including a heartbreaking 93-90 loss against the Magic on Sunday. Goran Dragic led the way with 22 points while Markieff Morris added 18 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but the Suns just fell short after cutting a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to just three with 1:02 remaining. Isaiah Thomas missed his third consecutive game with an ankle injury and the Suns definitely could have used his services, especially with Eric Bledsoe struggling to just 13 points with six turnovers. With the loss, Phoenix drops to 10-8 overall and 5-4 at home.
In ATS trends, the Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a loss and 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games, while the Suns are 29-14-1 ATS in their last 44 games following a loss and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against the Eastern Conference.
Head to head, the Pacers are just 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Phoenix and 0-8 ATS in the last eight meetings overall.
The Suns should be able to get the win and cover at home in this one but I'm never that confident betting against this pesky Pacers outfit.
