What to Know

The Indiana Pacers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last six games, but now they must head out on the road. Indiana and the Milwaukee Bucks will face off in a Central Division battle at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Fiserv Forum. The Pacers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Milwaukee and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 12 of last year.

Indiana lost a heartbreaker to the Golden State Warriors when they met in February, and they left with a heavy heart again on Monday. It was close but no cigar for Indiana as they fell 102-100 to Golden State. Power forward Domantas Sabonis put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 30 points and 11 rebounds. That makes it 12 consecutive games in which Sabonis has had at least ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Bucks lost to the Boston Celtics on the road by a decisive 117-103 margin. Milwaukee's defeat came about despite a quality game from point guard Jrue Holiday, who had 20 points and eight assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Pacers are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The losses put Indiana at 12-17 and Milwaukee at 18-11. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Indiana is fourth worst in the league in fouls per game, with 20.2 on average. To make matters even worse for the Pacers, Milwaukee enters the game with only 17.5 fouls per game on average, good for fourth best in the league. Keep an eye on whether or not foul trouble puts Indiana in a difficult position.
