The Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs meet Monday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.
The Indiana Pacers look for another win after winning five of their last six games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 109.3 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting. TJ Warren is averaging 18.6 points and 3.8 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.4 points and 4.9 assists. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Myles Turner is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have split their last six road games.
The San Antonio Spurs need a win after splitting their last six games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112.9 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 114.5 points on 46.8 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 22.6 points and 5.6 rebounds while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 18.8 points and 2.4 assists. Patty Mills is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 1.8 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have split their last eight home games.
The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio and 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The San Antonio Spurs are one of the more frustrating teams in the league, as you're never sure which team is going to show up and now Aldridge is questionable with a shoulder injury. The Indiana Pacers are starting to win games again, and they're an impressive 16-12-1 against the spread on the road. The San Antonio Spurs don't play defense and are just 9-19 against the spread at home. In a toss up contest, I'll take the Pacers, the more consistent team.
