Score: 121 - 116
Point Spread: -4/-110 Detroit
This is an 8* play on the Detroit Pistons.
The Indiana Pacers have one of the worst road records in the NBA, and they are in a tough spot here in the Motor City tonight. Starting PG Jeff Teague is nursing an ankle injury, and backup Rodney Stuckey is out with a hamstring injury. That leaves veteran Aaron Brooks and youngster Joe Young as the only healthy point guards ahead of tonight's game in Detroit. The Pistons have a losing record, but they've been a lot better at home than they have been on the road. It was just a week ago that they upset the defending champs Cleveland at the Palace. Detroit ranks 4th in the NBA with an opponent's scoring average of just 98.7 points per game. The Pacers have lost six of their last seven road games outright, failing to cover in all six of those losses. Reggie Jackson missed the first month of the season, but he's starting to heat up, scoring 47 total points in his last two starts. The home team has covered in five of the last seven in this series, a trend that is likely to continue tonight.
