The Line: San Antonio Spurs (-116) At Indiana Pacers (-104)
An Indiana Pacers (26-30) team playing two of the last three days on the road and coming home to face a Popovich coached San Antonio Spurs (27-28) team at full strength is a tall task to ask. Getting DeMar DeRozan and Patty Mills back from rest comes at an opportune time for the San Antonio Spurs faithful. Add a chance to get back to .500 on the season, then throw in the league fining the Spurs organization a whopping $25,000 for violating the team resting policy.
Indiana Pacers are a well-rounded team but Myles Turner being out for the season is starting to show. Along with Doug McDermott, Jeremy Lamb and Domantis Sabonis listed as questionable this team will be easy pickiness for an energized Spurs team if those three don’t suit up. Make sure to keep your eye on the injury report before tip-off.
Spurs have won their last three out of five games. While the Pacers have won just two out of five games. The Pacers looked sluggish and tired last night against the Hawks and tonight the defense is even better on the opposing side. Spurs outrebound the Pacers on paper, have a deeper bench and turn the ball over less. The line is moving quick so you will want to hop on this one or bet it live.
