Indiana Pacers 's Latest Performance :
The Pacers are coming off a loss against the Lakers as they had no answer for LeBron in this game. Leading the way for the Pacers was Sabonis as he scored 20 points adding 15 rebounds. He has really been playing great without Oladipo in the starting lineup as he has become the focal point of the Pacers offense while Victor was out with injury. He’s averaging 18.4 points, 11.4 rebounds over the past five games. Collison will likely be sent to the bench with Oladipo returning from his knee injury as he will be going face-to-face against Fox on the road. Turner scored six points with six rebounds as he will look to bounce back against the Kings. He is starting to play better alongside Sabonis as the Pacers might have found their frontcourt of the future. Turner will be going up against Cauley-Stein who has been playing really well as of late.
Sacramento Kings's Latest Performance :
The Kings have now dropped one game below the .500 mark after losing to the Clippers. It was their third loss in a row. The Kings were led by Bogdan Bogdanovic’s 26 points off the bench, but it wasn’t enough. He was back on the bench with Iman Shumpert (rest) back in the lineup but still played a season-high 35 minutes. After missing the first 10 games of the season, Bogdan looks to finally be getting into a groove averaging 18 points in his last five games. If he keeps up this type of scoring performance he might make his return into the starting lineup. Marvin Bagley had an 18 point, 10 rebound double-double in 27 minutes, but back problems in the fourth kept him out for the rest of the game. He remains questionable against the Pacers. Cauley-Stein should be getting more playing time as he finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds his seventh double-double of the season. Fox chipped in with 17 points as he will be going up against Oldipo who is coming back from a knee injury.

Against The Spread Selection: Sacramento Kings
My reason for the pick :
The Kings should be able to take care of business at home as Victor Oladipo won’t be going 100% yet as he will ease his way back into the rotation. Fox will look to take advantage as he will use his speed to score easy buckets in transition with the win the Kings will snap their three-game losing streak and have a .500 record again. The Kings have surprised a lot of teams this season after years of rebuilding it is great to see that things are looking up in Sacramento.
