Greg Frank’s NBA re-start record: 3-4 (1-0 yesterday)
Pacers (-2) @ Suns (229.5)
Pick: Pacers -2
It’s likely a battle of contrasting styles today between Indiana and Phoenix in the NBA bubble. The Suns will want to run up and down here while the Pacers will have no problem playing a slower game. Both teams are a little dinged up as Kelly Oubre and Aron Baynes are unlikely to dress for Phoenix, we definitely won’t see Domantas Sabonis for Indiana and Malcolm Brogdon may not go either. With depth getting tested, we’re going to lean on the team that’s simply better at this short of a number. Phoenix is hot having yet to lose since the league restarted, but it is still fighting an uphill battle to get into the play-in competition for the eighth seed. I had a feeling we might get a nice number on Indiana here after the Suns beat the Clippers on Tuesday, and two is definitely a number we’re comfortable laying. I’m expecting another big TJ Warren game and the Pacers to win this one. The under might be worth a look as well for the aforementioned contrast in styles.
