What you need to know about the Pacers

Indiana is returning home after going 2-3 on its five-game road trip that concluded with a 117-113 loss to New Orleans on Monday night. The Pacers allowed a season-high 66 points in the paint to Phoenix on Saturday and then gave up 64 to the Pelicans two days later. Indiana’s small-ball approach did have some nice results, though. 

Duane Washington Jr. set a Pacers single-game rookie record with seven 3-pointers against New Orleans, finishing with 21 points. Indiana is currently without its top two scorers in Domantas Sabonis (ankle) and Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles). The Pacers have covered the spread in four of their last six games against an Eastern Conference opponent. 

What you need to know about the Hornets

Charlotte has lost two games in a row, including a 125-113 road loss to Toronto on Tuesday. The Hornets are playing back-to-back games for the first time since Jan. 2 and Jan. 3. They made a season-low four 3-pointers in a loss to Atlanta on Sunday and shot just 10-of-31 from beyond the arc on Tuesday. 

Forward Gordon Hayward, who has missed the last two games due to a foot injury, is questionable for Wednesday’s contest. Power forward Miles Bridges leads the team with 20.1 points per game, while guard LaMelo Ball is adding 19.1 points. Charlotte has covered the spread in seven of its last 10 games.
