What to Know
This Sunday, the Indiana Pacers are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 117.29 points per matchup. They will square off against the Memphis Grizzlies on the road at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at FedExForum. The Pacers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Memphis and are hoping to record their first win since April 11 of 2021.
Indiana came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks this past Friday, falling 141-131. Point guard T.J. McConnell put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 19 points and nine assists along with six rebounds.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies ended up a good deal behind the Minnesota Timberwolves when they played this past Friday, losing 111-100. Memphis' loss came about despite a quality game from point guard Ja Morant, who posted a triple-double on 27 points, 11 assists, and ten boards. Morant now has four triple-doubles this season.
Indiana is expected to lose this next one by 9.5. Now might not be the best time to take Indiana against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
These two teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
