The Phoenix Suns invade the Gainbridge Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Here’s a Suns vs Pacers Prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have been in great shape as they've won 12 of their last 15 games overall and they will be eager to build on their seven-game win streak after blowing past the Mavericks in a 132-109 road win on Wednesday. Devin Booker led the team with 46 points on 17 of 23 shooting, Bradley Beal added 20 points with seven assists while Grayson Allen chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Suns shot 60 percent from the field and 14 of 34 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sloppy start and fell behind by 16 points in the first quarter, before they clicked into gear and dominated the rest of the game to make it look easy in the end.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been struggling for form as they've lost five of their last seven games overall, but they will be eager to stay hot in this one after taking down the 76ers in a 134-122 home win last night. Pascal Siakam led the team with a triple-double of 26 points with 13 rebounds and 10 assists, Myles Turner added 20 points, Andrew Nembhard tallied 19 points with eight assists while Aaron Nesmith chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Pacers shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 12 of 28 from the 3-point line as they came out looking like the more desperate team and just didn't take their foot off the gas until they led by 27 points in the third quarter. The Pacers will play against the Grizzlies after this one.

Suns vs Pacers Prediction

The Suns are keeping an eye on Eric Gordon who is questionable here, while the Pacers are still missing their leader Tyrese Haliburton. The Suns are playing some of their best basketball of the season, they have all their key players healthy and they just made light work of the Mavericks on Wednesday. The Pacers were really struggling before last night's impressive win over the red-hot 76ers, but it's going to be tough to replicate that effort on zero days' rest. This should be a close one, but I'm going with the more consistent Suns to continue their form with a win and cover at this reasonable line.
