The Indiana Pacers have hit a bit of a rough patch but a lot of that has to do with a combination of schedule and injuries.

When these teams met about three weeks ago, the Pacers won by 22 points, allowing just 31 percent shooting from the field and 16 percent shooting from deep. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Pacers on the road.
