The Pacers are faltering and now they head back home for one more game before the break. The Pacers are 7-4 cashing the over on no rest this season and with the All Star Break here, these might be literally no defense played tonight in Indianapolis.

Washington Wizards vs Indiana Pacers

The Pacers fell apart last night in the fourth quarter in Cleveland as the Cavs broke open their game in the fourth quarter to take the easy win. Indiana has had trouble closing out games this season and after playing the Cavs tough through three-quarters, they couldn't finish is out once again.

Now the Pacers are playing on the final day before the All Star Break against one of the hottest teams in the NBA. The Wizards have won 17 of their last 20 games SU and they open as -2 favorites tonight in Indiana.

However, with the break fast approaching, the Pacers tired already and the Wizards' offensive diversity, this one is going to be a high-scoring game. The week before the break is always a time that we see bad defense. However, the last day of the season before the break is notoriously bad defensively.

This game could turn into the closest thing to the All Star Game defensively other than the game itself this weekend. The Pacers have also cashed the over in seven of their 11 games on no rest this season and I'm following that trend.

The Pacers are already allowing over 116 points per game in their last five games and the Wizards have allowed over 109 points during their last five games. With the Wizards cashing the over at 5-1-1 in their last seven games, take the over tonight.
