This is a revenge spot for the Indiana Pacers as they were beaten by Atlanta 97-87 with the Pacers lined as a -4 point favorite on the road. This was a horrible spot for Indiana as they were playing their fourth game in five nights in four different cities for each game. Fortunately for Indiana they will not be playing four games on five nights. They are on a back to back but really weren’t tested on Monday as they beat a really bad Orlando Magic team. Atlanta will miss center Al Horford in this game. He is a necessary cog for the Hawks when they face teams with good front line and rim defenders. Horford is a rebounding machine and when you face the Pacers you need help on the glass or you will get crushed with second and third shots at the bucket when Indiana miss baskets. In their loss to Atlanta the Pacers simply did not have the energy that night as many teams falter in the four game in five night spot and facing travel to each destination. The Pacers are a very good road team this season as they sport a 14-8 straight up mark on the year. Indiana is the number one scoring and field goal defensive team in the NBA this season. The Pacers allow 90 points per game and 41.3% shooting to their opponents. Indiana’s starters did not go heavy minutes on Monday as they have good depth in Danny Granger, C.J. Watson and Luis Scola off the bench.
