Oddsmakers currently have the INDIANA listed as -3 point favorites versus the OKLAHOMA CITY, while the game’s total is sitting at 214.

The Indiana Pacers look like one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference with six wins in their last seven games and are doing it without a superstar in the lineup. The Pacers will try to ride their balanced attack to a fourth consecutive win when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.

Indiana is still without All-Star guard Victor Oladipo while he recovers from knee surgery and the team is relying on the entire rotation to do the scoring. “I think our guys are doing a good job of taking what the defense gives,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan told reporters. “What we talk about is getting organized – if we don’t have anything early, a good look or layup, we want to get organized and execute our offense. Those guys have been doing a really good job at doing that.” The Thunder pushed the Milwaukee Bucks to the end on Sunday before falling 121-119 and are winners of three of their last five while enjoying their own balanced scoring attack. Shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leads the team in scoring at an average of 21 points and followed up his lowest-scoring game of the season – 12 points in a win over Golden State on Saturday – with 22 points on Sunday.

ABOUT THE THUNDER (4-6): Oklahoma City forward Danilo Gallinari suffered through one of his worst shooting nights while going 4-of-17 from the floor on Sunday but knocked down a 3-pointer down the stretch to keep his team close and is impressed with his young teammates. “We had a lot of fight in us and that’s something we’re going to bring every night,” Gallinari told reporters. “That’s something that we try and make a guarantee for this team to bring it every night.” Backup point guard Dennis Schroder helped keep the Thunder in the game with a season-high 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting Sunday – his third 20-plus effort in the last eight contests.

ABOUT THE PACERS (6-4): While the Pacers wait for Oladipo and center Myles Turner (ankle) to rejoin the team, power forward Domantas Sabonis is quietly becoming a star. The 23-year-old Gonzaga product posted his fourth straight double-double with 21 points and 16 rebounds in Sunday’s 109-102 victory at Orlando and matched a season high with seven assists. Sabonis’s 21 points led the way on Sunday but T.J. Warren (19 points), Malcolm Brogdon (19) and Doug McDermott (18) each contributed to the balanced attack while reserve point guard T.J. McConnell enjoyed a second straight solid outing with 12 points and eight assists in 20 minutes.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Pacers SG Jeremy Lamb (ankle) sat out the last three games and remains day-to-day.

2. Thunder C Steven Adams (knee contusion) sat out Sunday and is day-to-day.

3. The home team took each of the two meetings last season.

PREDICTION: Pacers 103, Thunder 101
