Indiana Pacers (23-21) will visit the Milwaukee Bucks (27-16) tomorrow, hoping that their 3-three game losing skid will end at Fiserv Forum.

The Pacers dropped three straight games with an average of more 8.67 points. With Tyrese Haliburton still out due to a sprained left elbow and a mild left knee bruise, a rough stretch may be expected for the Pacers. No wonder why they open as double digit underdogs to Indiana sportsbooks.

However, Pacers aren’t the only team struggling lately, as the Milwaukee are 5-8 in their last 13 games, including their latest back-to-back losses over the Miami Heat. Both Khris Middleton and Joe Ingles will be out for Monday’s contest due to Knee injuries, while Bobby Portis (Right Quadriceps), Jrue Holiday (right ankle), and Giannis Antetokoumnpo (Knee) are probable.

Will the Bucks dominate the Pacers?

Haliburton Still Out

It’s a tough blow for Tyrese Haliburton and the Indiana Pacers, as the star point guard’s Thursday update on his injury wasn’t quite as promising as they had hoped. After initially suffering the left elbow sprain and mild left knee bone contusion in Wednesday night’s loss to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Haliburton will now need around two weeks of rest until he can be reevaluated.

The 22-year old point guard is averaging 20.2 points and showed that he can become one of the best floor general in the league with his 10.2 assists per game – No.1 in the NBA. He has been on point this season, leading Indiana to be one of the surprising teams in the league. While they are still not considered to be a team to beat in the East, they are certainly on a playoff level when healthy.

His absence has been especially felt in their three consecutive losses (against the Knicks, Grizzlies, and Hawks). Pacers will come across during this four-game swing will certainly be hoping to take advantage of their fresh misfortunes while they are still vulnerable.

It won’t be an easy journey for Indiana but there is still hope that they emerge unscathed if Haliburton’s return sparks victory off course and balances out their current losses with wins along the way.
