Grizzlies vs Pacers Prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing a host of players including Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, Marcus Smart and Derrick Rose, while the Pacers are still without Tyrese Haliburton. The Grizzlies have done really well to keep winning games despite being severely shorthanded, but they were somewhat lucky to get past the Magic and they're going to have to be at their best against this Pacers team who just took down the red-hot Suns. The Pacers looked great in their last two wins and I think they'll win at home, but the line seems too hefty, so I'll take the Grizzlies with the points.
