NBA In-Season Tournament: Pacers vs. Bucks SGP

The Indiana Pacers (11-8) and Milwaukee Bucks (15-6) square off in Las Vegas tonight in the first of two semifinal matchups of the NBA’s In-Season Tournament.

Milwaukee enters the contest as a 5.5-point favorite.

These teams last met on Nov. 9, Indiana coming away with a 126-124 victory in a game the Bucks were without star point guard Damian Lillard.

Below, I have outlined a three-leg same-game parlay for what promises to be an entertaining affair, with a spot in the Tournament Final on the line.

Let’s start the parlay with Milwaukee’s two-time league MVP, who should have his way against Indy’s struggling defense again.
