The Golden State Warriors are expected to get back Draymond for this game, but that's not enough to beat a hot Pacers team that's fighting for a top three seed in the East. With no Durant, Stephen Curry or Klay, the Warriors have limited scoring and are allowing 40.6 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. I'll eat the chalk with the Pacers, as I'm not trying to back the Warriors backups.
