NBA FREE PICK: Take San Antonio. According to latest NBA trends, the home team is 4-0 ATS L4 in series. Pacers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Home team San Antonio is 12-2-2 ATS in their last 16 vs. Eastern Conference, 19-6-3 ATS in their last 28 games following a ATS win, 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 games playing on 1 days rest, 33-13-5 ATS in their last 51 games following a S.U. win and are 33-15-3 ATS in their last 51 home games. The Pacers are still playing without star forward Danny Granger due to a knee injury. The San Antonio Spurs have beaten the Pacers nine straight times. Think the miss Granger? They needed double overtime tobeat a dismal Kings team on Saturday. Another issue for the Pacers is at the point where guard George Hill is playing through a hip pointer Hill faces former teammate Tony Parker in his second visit to San Antonio since the club shipped him to Indiana in the 2011 draft-day trade that allowed the Spurs to land Kawhi Leonard. Veteran guard Manu Ginobili (back) played for the first time this season in Saturday's victory over the Utah Jazz and tallied eight points in 15-plus minutes off the bench. Young guard Danny Green has taken up the slack as he scored 21 points against the Jazz, hitting 8-of-9 field-goal attempts and connecting on all three 3-pointers. Too much Tim Ducan and Parker in this one.
