What to Know

The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t won a contest against the Indiana Pacers since Oct. 26 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Sunday. The Cavaliers and Indiana will face off in a Central Division battle at 6 p.m. ET at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Both teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.

Cleveland was close but no cigar this past Friday as they fell 121-118 to the Atlanta Hawks. Cleveland was up 66-51 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. One thing holding Cleveland back was the mediocre play of small forward Lauri Markkanen, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 4-for-10 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.

Speaking of close games: Indiana lost 108-106 to the Chicago Bulls this past Friday on a last-minute jumper from Chicago’s small forward DeMar DeRozan as the clock expired. The losing side was boosted by power forward Domantas Sabonis, who posted a double-double on 24 points and 14 rebounds in addition to six assists. That makes it three consecutive games in which Sabonis has had at least 14 rebounds.

The Cavaliers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (9-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
