The Indiana Pacers will enter the game with an overall record of 22-24 on the season. They are two games below .500 and that is the same situation that the Bulls are in. However, Indiana is in the midst of a seven-game losing streak. Furthermore, six of those losses came after they lost their point guard to injury.
He is the best passer in the league this season and his loss has been immense to Indiana. At this time, he is a player that needs to be watched to see if he returns to the lineup (double-check his playing status). So long as he is “out”, “doubtful”, or “questionable” against the Bulls, bettors should oppose Indiana.
