Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis led the Indiana Pacers (6-8) to a 111-98 win over the New York Knicks (7-6) on November 3. The victory was the first in a stretch of six games for Indiana that included four wins. The Pacers will try to take another from the Knicks on Monday night in New York, and pick up their third win in as many games. After scoring a season-low six points against Utah on November 11, Sabonis came back with a double-double on Saturday against Philadelphia, with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

New York is favored by 3.5 points in the latest Knicks vs. Pacers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is set at 213. Before entering any Pacers vs. Knicks picks, you’ll want to see the NBA predictions from the model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Knicks

New York came up short against the Charlotte Hornets this past Friday, falling 104-96. The Knicks were up 34-18 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. One thing holding New York back was the mediocre play of power forward Julius Randle, who tied his season-low for points, with 10. In his last game against Indiana, he had 18 points and 14 rebounds.

Randle has still been the most productive player for the Knicks this season, and has averaged 21 points and 10.3 rebounds. New York has made just 41.9 percent of its field-goal attempts over its last three games, and much of that is due to the ineffective play of shooting guard Evan Fournier. Over his last two starts, he has scored just seven total points and hit just 27 percent of his shots from the field.

What you need to know about the Pacers

Even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Indiana beat the Philadelphia 76ers 118-113 this past Saturday. Small forward Justin Holiday joined Sabonis as a top performer in the game and shot 6-for-8 from 3-point range and finished with 27 points. In addition to Sabonis’ production on the scoreboard and glass, he also added five assists.

Indiana may be without rookie shooting guard Chris Duarte, after he hurt his ankle against Philadelphia. Duarte had a low-key night against the Knicks in their previous meeting, but he was efficient and scored 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting. Both teams have been among the league’s best at defending opponent’s 3-point attempts, but New York has been a top-five team when it comes to making them. That could mean trouble for Indiana, which has allowed opponents to hit 38 percent of their 3-pointers over the last three games.
