The Indiana Pacers go on the road to match up with the Milwaukee Bucks in Wednesday night NBA action.
Fresh legs are important in any sport at any level and maybe most important in NBA basketball and the Indiana Pacers should have them after last seeing the floor in a 114-106 loss at Orlando on Friday. Wild scoring swings in each period marked this shootout with the Magic hitting at 50.6% while Indians connected at 46.6% and totaled nine more looks at the basket thanks to 12 fewer turnovers. All five starters scored in double figures for the Pacers with Paul George and Jeff Teague netting 16 points each with Myles Turner tossing in a team high 17 points and six yanks while Thaddeus Young added 15 points and eight rebounds followed by Monta Ellis with 14 points and six helpers.

The Milwaukee Bucks meet the Indiana Pacers in NBA basketball preseason action looking to rebound from a 102-78 defeat at Detroit on Monday. The Bucks played a great first half and led by eight at the break but their scoring and defense left them in a second half owned by the Pistons. There was no mystery in what happened in this contest as Detroit sank shots at nearly 49% and Milwaukee couldn’t buy a basket on 37% marksmanship. The Bucks offense received 21 points and six pulls from Giannis Antetokounmpo on 7-11 from the field followed by an 18 point, five yank effort from Jabari Parker while Greg Monroe added 12 points and grabbed eight boards but only 2-13 players sank half their looks.
The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and the under is 8-1 in Pacers last 9 overall while the over is 10-2 in Pacers last 12 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and the Bucks are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the under is 8-2 in Bucks last 10 home games. The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
I think the line is off becaus the Pacers have played better basketball so don't be surprised if the line changes.
