Pacers at Pistons Under 235 1/2

It’s easy to think Over when the Pacers are in action. After all, the Pacers lead the NBA in scoring while ranking third from the bottom defensively.
But that’s not the way things have played out. The Pacers have gone Under an unbelievable 15 of their last 16 times when the total was below 240, which it is for this game.

Indiana has slowed down its tempo and been cold from 3-point range making only 33 percent of their shots from beyond the arc during its last 13 games following the All-Star break. That would rank the Pacers’ last in 3-point accuracy if computed for the entire season. Star point guard Tyrese Haliburton has really been struggling with his shot.

The Under has cashed in 13 of the Pacers’ last 17 games.

The Pistons rank 24th in scoring. They are averaging a meager 96.3 points during their past three games. Detroit, though, has been playing better defense. If you don’t count the 119 points they gave up to the Celtics – the No. 2 scoring team in the NBA – in their last game, the Pistons have held their last four foes to 103.2 points.

So it’s not a fluke that Detroit has gone Under in its last five games.
