The line for this game is Charlotte by 3 points.

The Indiana Pacers are 0-3 on the road and are allowing an average of 115.3 points away from home. The Pacers, who found some answers on the defensive end in a home win on Saturday, will try to solve their woes on the road when they visit the Charlotte Hornets on Monday.

Indiana All-Star forward Paul George was ejected with 1:42 left in the third quarter on Saturday for kicking a ball into the stands but the offense did not miss a beat thanks to point guard Jeff Teague’s best effort of the young season. Teague, who entered the weekend shooting 24.6 percent, went 9-of-14 from the field and knocked down three 3-pointers on Saturday – one more than he managed in the first five contests combined.

Kemba Walker extended his string of scoring 20 or more points to four straight games with a season-high 30 at Brooklyn and sees this year’s squad as similar to the one that tied for the third-best record in the East last season. Walker is averaging 24.4 points while shooting 42.4 percent from 3-point range.

Pacers reserve SF C.J. Miles is 20-of-33 from the floor in the last three games.

Hornets SF Marvin Williams is 9-of-35 from the field in the last three contests.

Charlotte took all three meetings last season.
