TJ Warren is averaging 18.5 points and 3.8 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.3 points and 4.9 assists. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Myles Turner is grabbing 6.3 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have split their last eight road games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 106.6 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 114.7 points on 48.9 percent shooting. Colin Sexton is averaging 19.9 points and 2.8 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds.

The Indiana Pacers looked decent in their win over the Portland Trail Blazers, and they are 16-12 against the spread on the road this season. The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the end of a back to back, and while they've won three straight at home, they're still a rough 12-18-1 against the spread at home. I'm not completely sold on the Pacers turning things around, but I have more confidence in them than I do the Cavs, a team that will go back to complete disaster before you know it. I'll lay the number with the Pacers on the road.
