The Suns will continue their road trip, as they head to Indiana to take on the Pacers on Friday, January 14th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
Phoenix started off as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 6. The total has gone from 216 to 215.5.
The Suns have played very well this year and they are certainly a dangerous team. When it comes to best teams in the league, I put their name in the category.
This squad has won three of their last four games and they should be able to make it a fourth out of five when they face the Pacers on Friday if they are on their game.
Losing in the finals last year to the Bucks has not seemed to impact their play this season. Of course, the real test will come playoff time, but I would expect these guys to be right back in the mix when the regular season is over.
They have a nice combination of very good players and a very good coach. When those two things happen, it often is a recipe for having success in this league.
Phoenix last played on Tuesday, where they beat the Toronto Raptors by a score of 99-95. That was a nice way for them to start off their road trip and they will look to keep that going in Indy.
The offense was not great for them in their last win, but the defense played very well. It is not too often that you score under 100 points and win a ball game in the NBA.
All year long, it has been a struggle for the Pacers. They have certainly been one of the more disappointing teams in basketball.
Indiana currently has a record of 15-27, which puts them in 13th place in the Eastern Conference. It is going to take a lot of things to go their way for them to get all that much better of a seeding.
I am not going to sit here and say that Indy is the most talented team in the NBA, but they have some good players. Frankly, there is no reason for them to better 12 games below .500 and they know that.
This crew got smoked by the Boston Celtics on Wednesday by a score of 119-100. That is the second time they lost to Boston in a few days, as they also lost to them on Monday.
In their last game, the defense for these guys just had no answers for Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The two studs combined for a total of 67 points and Dennis Schroder also added in 23 points. This unit will once again be challenged when they try and slow down a very good offense in the Suns.
NBA Betting Trends:

- The Suns are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.
- The Pacers are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games.
- The Pacers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games played on a Friday.
Phoenix Suns vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Analysis:
This is a battle between two teams that are have had completely different years and are headed in opposite directions. It is interesting to see how things shake out on Friday.
Phoenix has done a good job this year of taking care of the teams they should be able to and they another shot at doing so in Indy. These are the kind of games that they cannot drop.
The Pacers have been such a weird team this year, that you really do not know what to expect from. Sure, they could be competitive in this game or they could get totally smoked. Either result would not come to the surprise of me at this point.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns ATS
At this point, I just think that the Pacers are a beaten team and it is showing in the way they play. I do not give them much of a shot at being all that competitive against a very talented and well-coached Suns team.
Not only has Phoenix been good in terms of wins and losses, they have also been good at covering. I like them laying the 6 here because I do not feel that Indy has the personnel ready to stop their offense.
