The Indiana Pacers pay a visit to the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on Monday night. Here’s a Pacers vs Pistons Prediction.

Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers have been one of the hottest teams in December as they reeled off wins over the Heat, Celtics and the Bucks before falling to the Lakers in a 123-109 loss on Saturday. Tyrese Haliburton led the team with 20 points and 11 assists on eight of 14 shooting, Bennedict Mathurin added 20 points off the bench while Aaron Nesmith chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Pacers shot just 36 percent from the field and 10 of 41 from the 3-point line as they struggled against the size of the Lakers and just had no answer for the Lakers' Anthony Davis who torched them for 41 points, 20 rebounds, five assists and four blocks.

  • Tyrese Haliburton ranks 1st amongst qualified players for assists per game (12.1) this season.
  • Myles Turner ranks 2nd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (2.1) this season.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been the coldest team in the league as they are now hoping to avoid a 20th straight loss after getting thrashed by the Magic in a 123-91 road loss on Friday. Cade Cunningham led the team with 21 points and six assists, Killian Hayes added 16 points with seven rebounds and four assists while Alec Burks chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Pistons shot 42 percent from the field and six of 30 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense from the start and just kept falling behind further as the game went on against the Magic who shot over 55 percent from the field for the game.

Pacers vs Pistons Prediction

The Pacers are still missing Jalen Smith and they have Aaron Nesmith listed as questionable, while the Pistons are still missing Monte Morris, Jalen Duren and Marvin Bagley. The Pacers were on a hot streak before they got stopped in their tracks by the Lakers in the In-Season Tournament Finals, but they have a chance to ease their way back into the regular season with a matchup against the ice-cold Pistons. I'm sure the Pistons will come out swinging after getting embarrassed in their last outing, but it won't be enough to hang with the Pacers who will find plenty of easy baskets with their fast-paced offensive style. Give me the Pacers to take care of business on the road.
