Featured Game | Indiana Pacers versus San Antonio Spurs

Why the Pacers can cover

Indiana could take a season-opening loss, but it didn’t look nearly as bad as San Antonio did Wednesday night. The Spurs have the youngest roster in the NBA and have fully embraced a rebuilding period after trading in their top scorer from last year, Dejounte Murray. They were down by double digits at the end of the first quarter and ended up losing by 27 points as a 1-point underdog.

The Pacers came up short against Washington but lost by just seven points after being 10 points down in the first two minutes. Guard Tyrese Haliburton had 26 points and gave away seven assists, while Bennedict Mathurin finished with 19 points off the bench in his NBA debut. Indiana defeated San Antonio in both meetings last year, including a 131-118 final at home last November. The Pacers have covered the span in 10 of the last 12 competitions between those teams.

Why the Spurs can cover

Indiana did some late damage control against Washington, but it also lagged early in the season opener. The Pacers were without center Myles Turner due to an ankle injury he sustained while warming up before the game, and he will also miss this contest. Indiana was outplayed 58-34 with no Turner on court, so the Pacers will have a hard time winning games until he returns.

They have now lost 11 games in a row going back to the end of last season. San Antonio should improve quickly as its young roster gains crucial experience, especially since the Spurs are led by one of the best coaches in NBA history. They’ve covered the spread with a 9-3-1 clip in their last 13 games, while Indiana has covered just three times in their last nine games against Western Conference teams.
