|Time | Channel||9:00 p.m. ET | NBA TV|
The Pacers take on the Bucks on Monday night as they look to get back into the top-eight in the Eastern Conference standings. Milwaukee has been on a hot streak as of late. The Bucks have won six straight games and 9 of their last 10.
Of course, things are changed greatly in this matchup by the fact that reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is out with a knee issue. The Bucks dominated the first matchup with the Pacers, winning by 20 points and easily covering the nine-point spread.
With Antetokounmpo out, look for Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer to rely heavily on Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday to generate offense from the perimeter against a Pacers team that has Defensive Player of the Year candidate Myles Turner patrolling the paint.
With Antetokounmpo sidelined, one would expect Monday’s game to provide some serious value on the Pacers, and our latest PRO Report backs up that sentiment.
