Detroit is really struggling with injuries. They are heading to Indiana missing a lot of key players.
The same goes for Indiana, though they got an important piece back against Washington and it made a difference.
This is a great home spot for Indiana. Detroit will have its hands full.
Those injuries I mentioned up top are killing the backcourt as Reggie Jackson and Derrick Rose and Tim Frazier are questionable to out (Jackson).
Blake Griffin is questionable and he is only their best and most versatile player. He has yet to play a game this season.
In the absence of the above Blake Griffin has been a monster. He is averaging 22pg and 19rpg. I know part of that is opportunity but I have always thought he was underutilized.
Luke Kennard is having to play some point which is not natural for him. He makes good decisions and can shoot but is not elusive with the ball.
Tony Snell is earning more time with his ability to knock down shots. He became persona non grata with the Bucks last season but has a role here.
Detroit is playing hard for coach Casey but their margins were thin even with a full squad. You really have to pick and choose your spots.
On the road against a good defensive team does not feel like one of them.
Indiana is dealing with injuries too but they got Damontas Sabonis back and that is a very good thing.
Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner are still out which evens things a little. Jeremy Lamb is out, which is a shame because he has been really good for early. Also out is Goga Bitadze, a rookie big, so they are going to be thin upfront.
Malcolm Brogdon has been everything to this team early on. He is leading scorer at 22ppg and dishing off ten assists per game. He is making it look pretty easy too, like he was born to play for the Pacers. They are going to need him to be really good again here.
The same goes for Sabonis. He is super active but has to be careful in guarding Drummond because they need him on the boards. If he wins that battle the Pacers win easily.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Both teams are affected by injuries but not having a point guard you can play really hurts Detroit. Drummond is killing it but they are not featuring a lot of plays for him.
Indiana is missing folks too but they seem to be more resilient and they are at home so that always helps. They are on a thin margin though.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted (Go with the home side though)
Brogdon is the key here. The bigs cancel each other out and he is the difference maker. Has been all season.
