The Indiana Pacers travel to the Footprint Center to take on the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night. Here’s a Pacers vs Suns Prediction.

Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers have cooled off a bit recently as they’ve lost three of their past four games and they will be hoping to bounce back after falling just short to the Trail Blazers in a 118-115 road defeat on Friday. Myles Turner led the team with 29 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks, Pascal Siakam and Tyrese Haliburton scored 21 points each while Buddy Hield chipped in with 18 points and seven assists. As a team, the Pacers shot just 42 percent from the field and 20 of 47 from the 3-point line but they were slow to get their offense going and just couldn’t get back in front after falling behind by 13 points early. Haliburton is back healthy and Siakam looked pretty solid in his new uniform, but they’re bound to go through some growing pains which cost them in this contest. The Pacers will take on the Nuggets after this one.

Indiana Pacers Team Facts

  • The Pacers have won each of their last five games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back.
  • The Pacers have covered the spread in each of their last five games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back.
  • Ten of the Pacers’ last 11 road games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Phoenix Suns

Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been in great form as they’ve won nine of their last 12 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current four-game win streak after blowing past the Pelicans in a 123-109 road win on Friday. Devin Booker led the team with 52 points and five assists on 18 of 30 shooting, Kevin Durant added 26 points on 11 of 19 shooting while Bradley Beal tallied 13 points with seven rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Suns shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 41 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Pelicans from the start and just never looked in trouble after sccoring 41 points in the first quarter and taking a 17-point lead into halftime.

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won each of their last 10 home games against Central Division opponents following a win.
  • The Suns have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine home games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Seven of the last eight games between the Pacers and Suns at Footprint Center have gone UNDER the total points line.

Pacers vs Suns Prediction

The Pacers could be shorthanded for this one as Andrew Nembhard and Tyrese Haliburton are both listed as questionable, while the Suns are still missing Bol Bol and Damion Lee. The Pacers look like a stronger team with Pascal Siakam in the lineup, but it’s going to take some time to learn to gel as a team. We saw the Pacers struggle against the lowly Trail Blazers on Friday and I think we’re going to see a similar result here with the Suns getting the win and cover at the short line.
