The Pacers (6-4) remain short-handed when they host the Thunder (4-6) on Tuesday night for OKC’s only visit to BLF this season.
The Thunder are retooling after losing Paul George and Russell Wesbrook in the offseason. While they loaded up on future draft picks, the Thunder are still rolling out a solid lineup even if their depth of talent is a bit thin. Veterans Chris Paul and Steven Adams will always give OKC a chance and young gun, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and veteran gunner, Danilo Gallinari give the offense a big boost.
Myles Turner remains questionable and is the only player who could possibly return, although it he did not go live in practice on Tuesday and remains a game-time decision at best. The Pacers are favored by about 3 points, but will have to maintain their recent strong level of play with contributions across the board to earn their fourth consecutive win.
