The Indiana Pacers and Phoenix Suns meet Saturday in NBA action at the PHX Arena.
The Indiana Pacers need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 112.8 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 112.5 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 21.2 points and 4.6 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 20.8 points and six assists. TJ Warren is the third double-digit scorer and Myles Turner is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.6 rebounds per game.
The Phoenix Suns look to stay hot after winning 14 of their last 16 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113.9 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.2 points and 4.5 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16.1 points and 4.7 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 2.2 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 83.4 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.3 rebounds per game.
The Pacers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Suns are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 home games and 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Pacers last 5 overall. The over is 10-4 in Suns last 14 overall. The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers continue to be one of the more disappointing teams in the league and playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help matters. The Phoenix Suns have not only won 14 of their last 16 games, but they're winning their last five games by an average of 13.2 points. The Suns are also one of the better covering teams in the league dating back to last season, and they're 25-11 against the spread this season. There's no stepping in front of the Suns right now. I'll lay the reasonable chalk here.
