Indiana Pacers Fantasy Spin
Myles Turner busted out of his shooting funk on Monday, going 9-of-17 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line on his way to a season-high 28 points over 31 minutes. Turner added 10 rebounds, two triples, one assist, two steals and two turnovers while he was out there, and he was much more aggressive in seeking out his shot tonight. He went right at Jusuf Nurkic and wound up getting him into foul trouble, and the only real negative here is that he failed to block a shot, which is the first time that's happened since January. We wouldn't expect that streak to extend to two games.
Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin
Danilo Gallinari had 20 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes vs. the Nets. The Clippers went on a 33-9 run to close the first half, and won the fourth quarter 32-29 to clinch tonight's narrow victory. Gallo has scored at least 18 points in 12 straight games, not counting a precautionary DNP last Tuesday, and he's a must-own player with L.A. committed to the playoff race.
NBA Betting Trends
The Pacers are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games versus Western Conference foes but are just 1-4 against the number in their last five road games.
The Clippers are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
I like the over in tonight’s game, especially with the Pacers playing on tired legs after losing to the Trail Blazers last night in Portland. The over is 5-1-1 in the previous seven meetings between these two teams at Staples Center. The over is also 8-2-1 in the Clippers’ last 11 home games and cashed in five of their last five games versus Eastern Conference opponents.
