The Portland Trail Blazers travel to the Gainbridge Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Here’s a Trail Blazers vs Pacers Prediction.

Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have been in a real slump as they've lost nine of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting beaten by the Bucks in a 108-102 road loss last night. Jerami Grant led the team with 22 points, Malcolm Brogdon added 18 points with eight rebounds and 12 assists while Shaedon Sharpe chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 40 percent from the field and 13 of 32 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in full control after pouring in 68 points in the first half to lead by as many as 26 points, only to get run down in the fourth quarter where they got outscored by 33-14.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in pretty good form as they've won six of their last nine games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after making light work of the lowly Pistons in a 136-113 win on Friday. Myles Turner led the team with 23 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks, Tyrese Haliburton tallied 26 points with 10 assists, Buddy Hield scored 18 points while Obi Toppin chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Pacers shot 48 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Pistons off to a quick start and fell behind at halftime, but they stayed within striking distance and dominated the fourth quarter by 39-17 to make it a complete blowout in the end.

Peter's Pick

The Trail Blazers are going to be shorthanded again with Ish Wainright and Anfernee Simons still out, while the Pacers are keeping an eye on Aaron Nesmith who is questionable for this one. The Trail Blazers were more than competitive in last night's narrow loss to the Bucks, but they've been in terrible form, so I'm happy to stick with the in-form Pacers to maintain their momentum with a win and cover at home.

Peter’s Pick Indiana -11.5
