The Indiana Pacers seemed poised to get their first win on Friday night, but the visiting San Antonio Spurs fired on all cylinders, upsetting the hosts, 137-134, to send the Blue and Gold to their second loss of the season.

However, the Pacers will not have any time to pout, as they are set to take on the Detroit Pistons which, like them, just came off a loss. With both teams on a back-to-back, this should make for an entertaining match between two rebuilding teams captained by high-upside backcourt pairings. This will be Indiana’s first Central Division matchup this season.

Last season, the Pistons won the season series, winning three out of four games against the Pacers. Indiana leads the all-time series, 105-100, though Detroit has won in two straight meetings between both clubs.

Indiana Pacers vs Detroit Pistons Prediction

The Pacers blew a golden chance in their first two games to notch their first win, and it gets tougher from here on out. The Pistons may not be a playoff team, but they pack a punch, especially with their one-two punch of Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey in the backcourt.

However, with both teams on the second leg of a back-to-back, look for Indiana to rally behind the home crowd and will themselves to a win in a close one before setting off on the road.
