What you need to know about the Pacers
Indiana is hoping to get some key players back in the lineup on Monday night. Leading scorer Malcolm Brogdon missed Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury — he is listed as questionable for this game. Small forward Caris LeVert missed the first six games of the year with a stress fracture in his back, but he saw the court for the first time this season in Saturday’s loss to Toronto. LeVert scored 15 points in his 16 minutes of action, which all came in the first half.
Indiana is led by big man Domantas Sabonis, who scored 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds his last time out. The Pacers are not the only team dealing with a key injury on Monday, as San Antonio is going to be without Doug McDermott (knee). Indiana has covered the spread in seven of its last nine home games.
What you need to know about the Spurs
San Antonio has been an outstanding road team, covering the spread in its last five games away from home. The Spurs will bring even more confidence into this game, as they have gone 10-2 in their last 12 trips to Indiana. They snapped a four-game losing streak with an impressive 102-93 win over the defending champions on Saturday.
Milwaukee was held to 21 points below its normal scoring output in the 102-93 final. San Antonio guard Dejounte Murray scored 16 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, while Derrick White added 17. The Spurs have lost all four of their games by single digits and those setbacks came against some of the top teams in the NBA.
