Pacers & Clippers over 189
The Indiana Pacers host the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. Indiana is coming off a 108-97 win over Golden State, while the Clippers beat the Bobcats their last time out, 106-84.
The Pacers were one of the NBA’s stingiest defensive teams in the early part of the season, but they've really picked up their pace of play lately.
Indiana has scored an average of 115.7 points per game over their last three home games.
They’ll be likely to keep their ramped up pace in effect as they employ a smaller lineup in this one. The Pacers will be without their top defensive player and rebounder, Roy Hibbert, who will serve his one-game suspension on Thursday night.
Los Angeles’ offense has traveled very well of late, as the team has recorded 111.3 points per game over their last three road contests.
The Clippers will get Sixth Man of the Year candidate Jamal Crawford back for this game after he missed Monday’s win over Charlotte after his wife gave birth to their daughter in Seattle. Crawford has chipped in 16.7 points per game in a reserve role for the Clippers this season.
The over is 5-2 in the Clippers’ last seven road games. Take the OVER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
