The Golden State Warriors and the Indiana Pacers collide at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday night.

The Golden State Warriors have been in decent form lately as they’ve won five of their last eight games and they will be looking to build some momentum after last night’s 114-106 road win over the improving Knicks. Stephen Curry led the team with 37 points and six assists, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 19 points while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 38 from the 3-point line as they took control with 39 points in the third quarter to lea by as many as 13 points, before holding off the Knicks’ rally in the fourth quarter where they tied the game before fading late.

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their last four games and because their last two games were postponed, they haven’t played since their 134-128 overtime road win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Domantas Sabonis led the team with a triple-double of 36 points with 16 rebounds and 10 assists, Malcolm Brogdon added 32 points, nine rebounds and seven assists while Jeremy Lamb chipped in with 18 points off the bench. As a team, the Pacers shot 50 percent from the field and 13 of 26 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to force overtime on the back of clutch free throws from Sabonis, before escaping with the win in overtime where they held the Timberwolves to just seven points.


Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 5-17-1 ATS in their last 23 games playing on zero days’ rest and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. The Pacers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record.

Head to head, The Warriors are 5-13 ATS in the last 18 meetings in Indiana.

The Warriors haven’t been at their absolute best as they’re still dealing with a long list of injuries, but they’re coming off a solid win over the Knicks thanks to a big game from Curry. The Pacers were in great form before having their last two games postponed, so they will be well-rested as they haven’t played since Wednesday. It’s hard to know what to expect in this contest as the Warriors played just last night while the Pacers had a week off, but I’m sticking with the Pacers to shake off the rust with a solid win at home over the weary Warriors.
