through 3 quarters
The Indiana Pacers are on the road but don’t look worse for wear. They became the favorites after three quarters and edged the Sacramento Kings 74-67.
Indiana relied on the performance of power forward Myles Turner, who lost a double-double on 13 rebounds and ten points as well as five blocks. Turner has to be careful though, as he’s struggling with four.
Sacramento enjoyed the team combination of little forward Harrison Barnes and shooter Buddy Hield. The former has 16 points and four assists in addition to four rebounds, while the latter shot 5 for 11 from downtown and recorded 17 points and four rebounds.
That’s the fewest points the Kings have yet this season heading into the fourth quarter.

What there is to know
The Sacramento Kings face the Indiana Pacers at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at the Golden 1 Center. The Kings will strut after a win while Indiana stumble after a loss.
Sacramento won its game against the Charlotte Hornets last Friday by a concluding score of 140-110. With Sacramento ahead 74-53 at halftime, the game was already almost over. It was another big night for forward Richaun Holmes, who posted a double-double with 23 points and 20 rebounds.
Meanwhile, it was tight but no cigar for Indiana as they lost 110-106 to the Portland Trail Blazers last Friday. Despite the loss, Indiana had a strong performance from point guard TJ McConnell, who had 19 points in addition to seven rebounds.
Barring any buzzer batsmen, the Kings should win a close contest. They might be worth trying their hand at ATS as they are currently on a three-game winning streak against ATS.
Sacramento is now 5-4 while the Pacers are 3-7. A few stats to keep in mind as you watch: Sacramento enters the game with 113.2 points per game on average, good for second-best in the league. Less than enviable, Indiana is the fourth-worst in the league in points against per game, averaging 111.4. They might struggle to beat 100.
