The Pacers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Nets are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Indiana and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
While I don't trust the Pacers, the Nets are god awful and will struggle to keep up with the Pacers outside shooting. Not to mention Indiana is still fighting for playoff position and would like to get out of the eighth seed if possible.
