Both the Suns and Pacers were guilty of poor defensive displays in their previous loss and will look to put an end to a pair of losing streaks when the two meet on Tuesday night.
Phoenix fell victim to the Timberwolves last time out as they allowed 117 points in a 30 point loss.
The Pacers were no better as they allowed 129 points in a loss to the Nuggets.
Indiana has dropped 3 in a row and their defense has simply been no where to be seen in all 3 losses.
The Pacers have allowed just 99.6 points per game this season, but over their last 3 games they’ve allowed 129,118, and 103.
The 3 straight losses have sent them back into 7th place in the Eastern Conference as they sit 7.5 games off the pace for the top spot. They also sit tied for the 8th spot as the East is just log jammed near the bottom.
They now continue their 4 game west road swing that includes a date with Phoenix on Tuesday, then back to back games in Golden State and Sacramento this weekend. The road hasn’t been kind to the Pacers as they are just 9-13 SU away from home.
Like the Pacers, the Suns defense has been completely non existent. However, their defensive problems have been there all season long.
Phoenix has allowed 106.9 points per game this season and has allowed back to back 117 point games along with a 116 point game as they have had nothing working for them. As a result they’ve dropped all 3 games and have added a loss to the Heat in the process to make it 4 straight losses.
Phoenix has simply been a mess overall this month as they have allowed ridiculous point totals against. The most notable one came back on 11/2 as they surrendered a ridiculous 142 point game to the Kings.
The Suns have won just 1 game in the month of January, which has set them back in the Western Conference. Phoenix now sits 6 games out of the 8 seed and have the likes of San Antonio and Cleveland in their near future.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Pacers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
- Pacers are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 vs. Western Conference.
- Pacers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
- Suns are 25-11-2 ATS in their last 38 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.
- Suns are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games.
Free NBA Prediction:
While Indiana has been a mess lately, they haven’t been this bad defensively this season. Indiana needs to find their defensive mindset they had back in 2015, where teams where struggling to reach 100 points against them.
This has the potential to be one of those spots where they can find their rhythm. The Suns offense has been so inconsistent and their defense has been bad pretty much every single game. Look for Indiana to race out early against the Suns here as they should be able to handle them.
