Forward Justin Holiday closed out his performance with 16 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 34 minutes spent on the court.

Indiana is 5-17 away, 12-12 at home and 10-12 ATS on the road this season.

In their 109-101 away win versus the Mavericks on Thursday, guard Devin Booker led his team in scoring, putting up 28 points in 38 minutes of action. Guard Chris Paul added one more double-double to his career total as well. He finished with 20 points, 5.0 rebounds and 11 assists in 37 minutes played. Counting this win, the team is now 18-4 away, 17-5 at home and 11-11 ATS at home.

Regarding other matchups, in the past three head-to-head meetings, the Suns are 2-1 against the Pacers. On Jan. 14, 2022, the first time these teams met during this regular season, Phoenix won 112-94 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

In other news, Suns center Bismack Biyombo was asked about why he chose to play for the organization. He said, “The number one thing for me was that playing this year, I wanted to play for something. I wanted a season full of purpose. It was just a matter of being patient and waiting for the right situation.” Biyombo, the 29-year-old veteran center, is averaging 8.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and nearly 1.0 assist per game this season.
