Summary:

Indiana is three-point home favorites and they should be; they are playing very good basketball with solid wins over New Orleans and Houston and have had two nights of rest and that is huge with the way the NBA schedule is set up. Phoenix will be playing its third game in four nights and played overtime last night against Detroit. Fatigue is a real thing in the NBA and I will take the Pacers to cover the three-point spread in this one.

Details:

The Suns, despite having talented playmakers, have struggled at pivotal points with consistency as well while their top guns logged in some heavy minutes last night in their overtime loss to Detroit.

Pacers will have had two days’ rest before taking the floor versus the Phoenix Suns. Furthermore, it remains to be seen whether the rest was a good thing for an Indiana team that has won 3 of their last 4 games, including 2-straight, after taking out Rockets at home by 7-points Wednesday night.

The Suns were not able to pick up what should have been an easy win over a now 2-7 Detroit team Friday night.  Now, on the 2nd game of a back to back, they will be seeking to get a victory over a Pacers' team that has had multiple days' rest before taking the floor. 

And despite the Suns getting a win over Indiana in their last matchup to halt a 6-game losing streak, the Pacers are simply the well-rested team that is also riding a winning streak entering this contest.  In all, Indiana is simply playing better basketball during this time and by being successful against the number in their last 6 home games (4-2), I like the Pacers to get back into the swing of things in a hurry to cover the points.
