Phoenix is not much of a factor in the West, even though the conference is down this season.
Indiana is in a dogfight in the tough Eastern Conference. They are going to have to keep scooping up these easy ones.
The Suns looked decent early but they have won just one of their last 11 games falling out of it even in the not so great West this season. Hard to see a big turnaround either.
It is no surprise that the Suns have not been able to break out of their current funk with Eric Bledsoe now lost for the season. He was their leading scorer and part of a backcourt putting up 40ppg with Brandon Knight.
With Bledsoe out they are taking a deeper loot at rookie Devin Booker, he is more of a pure #2 and a really good shooter. I like what I am seeing from him with the increased playing time.
Phoenix does not get much production inside, Tyson Chandlers is back in the lineup but Alex Len is not likely to play on Tuesday with a hand injury.
This team is just not deep enough to sustain injuries and they will have two key contributors out for this one.
Indiana is coming off a tough OT loss and has only split their last 10 but they are one of the reasons the East is so competitive this season. How long can they keep it up? They seem a fade candidate.
The Pacers are all about Paul George. The multi dimensional forward is the one player you have to have a game plan for, especially with Monta Ellis potentially out of the lineup Tuesday night.
I Ellis is a no go they will look to Rodney Stuckey to fill that hole. He has the ability to step up but personally I have never liked his game.
Similar to Phoenix the Pacers do not rely that muck in their inside people but they are reliable effort players. This game will be won or lost on the perimeter that is for sure.
Indiana is interesting this season because even though they have amped up their offense they are a top 10 defensive team. I just wonder how long they can keep it up, they might have peaked too early.
They have been a good ATS play too at 21-16.
If the Pacers are going to stay relevant in the Eastern Conference these are the kinds of games of games they have to have. This year it is a lot harder to just rely on beating up teamsome in the conference.
