Indiana Pacers Betting
The Pacers suffered a humiliating loss to the Atlanta Hawks on the road and will look forward to beating the Hornets to get some confidence back. Domantas Sabonis was the best player on that match as he dropped 25 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 11-of-15 from the field. Aside from him, the rest of the starters were shooting 33% below. It was only Justin Holiday that came off the bench and had a better accuracy on the floor. Shot selection has become a problem for the Pacers and if they just improve shooting at 45%, they were just only a few shots away from winning against the Hawks.

It looks like the Charlotte Hornets were able to find their rhythm on the road as they disposed of Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks when they headed west. Terry Rozier is beginning to adjust to the bigger role that he was given this year and that is to fill up the shoes of Kemba Walker. In that game, he was able to do 29 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Devonte Graham continues his breakout season as he did 27 points and 13 rebounds. Bismack Biyombo is getting more numbers in with 11 points and 13 rebounds as well. Overall, this Hornets team is finding what works for them already and will look to secure a win over the Pacers to make it a winning streak.
