Featured Game | Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks
Why the Pacers can cover
Atlanta has struggled with consistency of late, losing six of its last eight games following its 114-105 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday. The Hawks have struggled to get anything going away from home this season, losing 10 of their last 14 road games. They have only covered the spread six times in their last 18 games overall, so they are a team to avoid right now.
Indiana has been trending in the opposite direction, winning six of its last eight games. The Pacers picked up a 129-114 win against Atlanta last month, as Buddy Hield poured in 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Hield had 31 points on 11-of-20 shooting on Wednesday for the Pacers, who have won six straight home games.
Why the Hawks can cover
Indiana is going to have to overcome a major hurdle on Friday night, as star guard Tyrese Haliburton went down with an injury in the loss to the Knicks earlier this week. He is not only the team’s leading scorer (20.2), but he is also the NBA’s assists leader (10.2) up to this point. Meanwhile, Atlanta played without leading scorer Trae Young in its loss to Milwaukee due to an illness, but he is set to return on Friday.
Young is averaging 27.5 points and 9.8 assists per game, so his return should pay dividends in this matchup. Veteran Bogdan Bogdanovic led the Hawks with 22 points as they erased a 24-point second-half deficit against the Bucks before coming up just short. Atlanta has won four of the last five meetings between these teams.
