The Indiana Pacers are currently in the middle of a losing skid for the first time in quite a while after another road loss, this time to the Utah Jazz, to fall to 12-10 this season. It was a wire-to-wire beatdown, with the visitors giving up a season-high 139 points en route to their fourth loss in the last six games.

Things don’t get easier for the Pacers, though, as they are slated for another back-to-back starting tonight at Oregon to take on the Portland Trail Blazers. Indiana has a rest advantage with the hosts having just played last night, but with how the team has been playing recently, not a lot will be penciling them in as favorites.

Both teams split the season series last season. Portland leads the all-time series, 59-37, and has won seven of their last ten head-to-head matchups.

Indiana Pacers vs Portland Trail Blazers Prediction

The Pacers have trailed by double-digits in each of their last six outings, marked by their slow starts in opening quarters. Against a Blazers team that can be dangerous on offense at times, led by Anfernee Simons and Jerami Grant, another slow start will shave off their chances of snapping their skid. However, Indiana is the more rested team, and with more sense of urgency, they should be able to get the job done.
