Terry Rozier is averaging 17.6 points and 4.5 rebounds while Devonte' Graham is averaging 17.6 points and 7.7 assists. Miles Bridges is the third double-digit scorer and PJ Washington is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game. The Charlotte Hornets have won their last three road games.
The Indiana Pacers need a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 109.2 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 107.8 points on 44.9 percent shooting. TJ Warren is averaging 18.5 points and 3.8 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.3 points and 4.8 assists.

The Hornets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games. The Pacers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The under is 4-0 in Hornets last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in Pacers last 5 home games. The Hornets are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Indiana and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers have done nothing as of late to deserve laying double-digit chalk, and now there's news of Jeremy Lamb being out for the year with a serious knee injury. The Indiana Pacers are losing their last five games by an average of 7.8 points and were just on the end of one of the bigger blowout losses in recent memory. The Charlotte Hornets have issues of their own, but I'm not siding the Pacers and a line this big. Can't happen.
