Paul George is averaging 25.3 points and 6.1 rebounds while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 25 points and 4.9 rebounds.

The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. The Clippers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games. The under is 9-2 in Pacers last 11 games as an underdog. The over is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 overall. The Pacers are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers are the better team obviously and are plying consistent ball for once lately, but they've never been a great covering team, especially at home this season. The Indiana Pacers are quietly piling up the wins, play solid basketball each night, and there's a chance they have Caris LeVert for this contest. The Pacers aren't sexy and don't have the flashy names, but they produce and it wouldn't be shocking to see them scratch out an outright win here. Give me the points.
