The Indiana Pacers look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. On the season, the Pacers are averaging 96 points on 43.6 percent shooting and are allowing 96.7 points on 43.7 percent shooting. George Hill is averaging 13.8 points and 4.4 assists while David West is averaging 12.6 points and 7.2 rebounds. C.J. Miles is grabbing 2.9 rebounds and Rodney Stuckey is dishing 3.1 assists. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 38.2 percent shooting in their last five games and have allowed less than 100 points in nine of their last 12 games. The Pacers are back to playing elite level defense, and it’s helped get them right back in the thick of the East playoff race.
The Knicks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Central and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Pacers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest. The Knicks are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Indiana and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
While I hate big chalk, the Knicks are god awful and seem to be getting worse if yesterday is any indication of things. The only play here has to be Indiana to win in a blowout.
