The Boston Celtics face Indiana Pacers in Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs at the TD Garden on Wednesday evening hoping to take a 2-0 series lead and continue their dominance in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series.
Indiana and Celtics have met four times throughout the regular season, with Celtics winning three of four games including their last two meetings in April 6th.
The Celtics defeated the Pacers 84-74 in Game 1 of their first round series on Sunday. Both teams were struggling offensively in Game 1, combined to scored just 158 points.
Pacers led by as many as 7 points in the first half before Celtics used a big run to pull away and sail to the victory. The Boston allowed only 8 points while scoring 26 points special thanks to Horford who started the second half with five points in the decisive third quarter.
Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris led the Celtics with 20 points each. Jayson Tatum contributed with 15 points while Al Horford and Gordon Hayward chipped in 10 points each. Cory Joseph scored 14 points for the Pacers while Bojan Bogdanovic added 12 points.
The Boston Celtics are looking forward to keep momentum going after winning five of their last six games in the NBA league. The club are placed fourth in the Eastern Conference standings with a 49-33 record.
The Pacers, on the other hand, are struggling in recent weeks having lost ten of their fourteen games as well as eleven losses out of twelve on the road. The club sits fifth in the Eastern Conference with a 48-34 record.
Boston are more able than Indiana to dribble, pass, and shoot the ball. Also, Celtics have defeated Pacers thrice in the same league season. We expect Celtics will continue their good form and will win their play-off Game 2.
