The Indiana Pacers will open up a long west coast trip as they head into Golden St. The Indiana Pacers are a focused team. Their ultimate goal this regular season is to be the number one seeded team in the Eastern conference. This came about following a heartbreaking seven game loss in the Eastern conference finals last year to the Miami Heat. Losing a game seven that prevented the Pacers from a World Championship series appearance on the Heat home court impacted Indiana’s approach to the regular season on the 2013-14 campaign. The team is 11-6 straight up on the road this season and Golden St is just 12-5 on their home court. Many of the Pacers losses this season came in bad spots such as back to backs with travel and when facing a fourth game in five nights. This is not the case on Monday as the Pacers are well rested as they play Golden St with a day of rest after a four game home streak that saw the team go 4-0. There have been no back to back games for Indiana in their past five game counting Monday’s game. Indiana is fresh and well rested. Golden St plays their first home game after a two game road trip. Without Jarrett Jack coming off the bench the Warriors have to be downgraded from the team they had a season ago. Jack had starting point guard quality off the bench for Golden St last year.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Monday we will play on the Indiana Pacers +1 point against the Golden St Warriors at the sportsbooks.
