The Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Staples Center.
The Indiana Pacers could use a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 108 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 103.9 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 17.8 points and 1.9 assists while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 14.3 points and 9.1 rebounds. Myles Turner is the third double-digit scorer and Wesley Matthews is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have lost each of their last six road games.
The Los Angeles Clippers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Lou Williams is averaging 20.4 points and 5.2 assists while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.4 points and 6.1 rebounds. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit scorer and Landry Shamet is grabbing 1.9 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.7 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won seven of their last eight home games.
The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Clippers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Pacers are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in LA and 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 8-2-1 in Clippers last 11 home games. The under is 6-0 in Pacers last 6 overall.
The Indiana Pacers are on the end of a back to back and continue to have issues scoring the basketball, as they entered the game against Portland shooting just 41.9 percent from the field in their last five games. The Los Angeles Clippers are red hot offensively, averaging 121.8 points and shooting 44.5 percent from three in their last five games. If those shots continue to fall for the Clippers, the Pacers will have a hard time keeping up, as we saw last night against the Trail Blazers. I have to lay the reasonable chalk with the Clippers, as the Pacers are struggling to find easy offense at the moment.
