The Indiana Pacers will take on Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the NBA playoff series at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday night, with Pacers hoping to bounce back in front of the home crowd and Celtics aiming to take a dominating 3-0 lead of their best-of-seven series.
The Pacers are looking forward to strike back after dropping two winnable games in Boston to open their first-round playoff series. The Celtics defeated the Pacers 84-74 in Game 1 last weekend and also came out as a winner in Game 2 after beating Indiana Pacers 99-91 on Wednesday night.
The Pacers made a good start and had a 10-point lead in the second half. But Boston Celtics rebounded in the fourth quarter to beat the Indiana Pacers. Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 37 points, six rebounds and seven assists. Jayson Tatum scored 26 points and Gordon Hayward contributed 13 points.
The Pacers are in good shape this season but have failed to close out a close game for the two consecutive time in the playoff series. Indiana took the lead in both games against Boston in the first half, but let the good opportunity slip away in the second half due to their poor shooting.
The Boston Celtics are looking forward to keep momentum going after winning six of their last seven games in the NBA league. The club were placed fourth in the Eastern Conference standings and finished the season with a 49-33 record.
The Pacers, on the other hand, are struggling in recent weeks having lost eleven of their fifteen games and have registered two straight loss at home against Celtics and Nets in the regular season. The club were placed fifth in the Eastern Conference standings and finished the season with a 48-34 record.
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.
