The Indiana Pacers failed to secure another win on their road trip, falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a close one last Wednesday, 121-115, to fall to 13-12 on the season and finish the trip with a 2-5 slate.

Fortunately, the Pacers are back in town as they wager their 7-4 record at home against the Washington Wizards for the third time this season, with both teams already having won one game apiece against each other so far.

Both teams split the season series last season and have also split their series in the present campaign. Indiana leads the all-time series, 104-85, though Washington has won six of their last nine head-to-head matchups.

Indiana Pacers vs Washington Wizards Prediction

The Pacers badly need to capitalize on their homestand to offset their bad road trip. Facing the Wizards, who are currently riddled with injuries, should be their best chance at seizing one. With that considered, look for Indiana to simply overpower the visitors and get back to the winning column as a tough schedule looms.
