Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Indiana Pacers vs Phoenix Suns
The Suns will welcome the Pacers to Talking Stick Resort Arena as they are coming off a loss against the Pistons while the Pacers are coming off a loss against the Jazz losing their third game in a row. Game tips off at 9:00 PM ET.
Indiana Pacers 's Latest Performance :
The Pacers have now lost three games in a row against the Jazz as they really miss their star and leader Victor Oladipo. It is still questionable whether he is going to return in time to play the Suns. Corey Joseph will be taking his place while he is out. It is tough for the Pacers to play their regular style of basketball when two of their best player is out but it not an excuse as other players on the team will have to use this as an opportunity to prove themselves that they are capable of playing with Oladipo on the squad especially going up against a young squad like the Suns. Evans will have to play well for the Pacers for them to come out with a win on Tuesday. The players that are on the injury list for the Pacers are Oladipo, Turner, and Sabonis. Miles Turner if healthy will have to do his best to contain Ayton who is coming off a career night in scoring with 25.
Phoenix Suns 's Latest Performance :
The Suns are coming off a loss against the Pistons despite beating the Bucks in their last game. The Suns had no answer for Blake Griffin in the 4th quarter he was held to only 4 points in three quarters but scored 12 points in the 4th to secure the win for the Pistons. TJ Warren was ejected from the game and that cost the Suns the game without their second leader the scorer not on the floor its tough for the Suns to pull out the win. Booker got hot and finished the game with 37 points on 14-of-23 FGs. Booker made 9-of-10 shots in the first half tonight and the Pistons couldn’t slow him down, despite using four different primary defenders against him. He only had 5 dimes on the night his lowest since being moved to play point guard. Deandre Ayton scored a career-high 25 points with 12 rebounds. He has 10 double-doubles in the Suns’ first 19 games. I expect Booker and Ayton to take advantage of the Pacers as Oladipo is still questionable because of his sore right knee.

Against The Spread Selection: Phoenix Suns
My reason for the pick :
The Suns should be able to take off the short-handed Pacers as they will pick up their 5th win of the season Booker is bound to have yet another high scoring game as he is starting to look comfortable playing the point guard role. For the Pacers, they will have to be patient until their star players come back from injuries. It goes to show how important to have your stars on the team to win at this level. Go with the Suns to win at home.
