Through 3 Quarters

The Indiana Pacers are on the road but looking no worse for wear. They have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of the Sacramento Kings 74-67.

Indiana has been relying on the performance of power forward Myles Turner, who has dropped a double-double on 13 rebounds and ten points along with five blocks. Turner does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four.

Sacramento has enjoyed the tag-team combination of small forward Harrison Barnes and shooting guard Buddy Hield. The former has 16 points and four assists in addition to four boards, while the latter has shot 5-for-11 from downtown and has recorded 17 points and four rebounds.

This is the least points the Kings have had yet this season going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know

The Sacramento Kings will take on the Indiana Pacers at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at Golden 1 Center. The Kings will be strutting in after a victory while Indiana will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Sacramento took their contest against the Charlotte Hornets this past Friday by a conclusive 140-110 score. With Sacramento ahead 74-53 at the half, the matchup was all but over already. It was another big night for their power forward Richaun Holmes, who posted a double-double on 23 points and 20 boards.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Indiana as they fell 110-106 to the Portland Trail Blazers this past Friday. Despite the loss, Indiana got a solid performance out of point guard T.J. McConnell, who had 19 points in addition to seven rebounds.

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

Sacramento is now 5-4 while the Pacers sit at 3-7. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Sacramento enters the game with 113.2 points per game on average, good for second best in the league. Less enviably, Indiana is fourth worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 111.4 on average. They might struggle to break 100.
