What to Know

They will face off against the Boston Celtics in an Eastern Conference playoff game at 8:00 p.m. ET at TD Garden. The stakes are high as the pair are all in, both fighting to extend their postseason success.

The Pacers can’t be too worried about heading out to take on the Celtics: they just beat the Knicks at home, who had been dominant on their own court up to that point. Everything went the Pacers’ way against the Knicks on Sunday as the Pacers made off with a 130-109 win. The victory made it back-to-back wins for Indiana.

The Pacers’ victory was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Tyrese Haliburton, who scored 26 points along with six assists.

Meanwhile, the Celtics waltzed into their contest on Wednesday with two straight wins… but they left with three. They enjoyed a cozy 113-98 win over the Cavaliers.

The Celtics relied on the efforts of Jayson Tatum, who almost dropped a triple-double on 25 points, ten rebounds, and nine assists, and Al Horford, who dropped a double-double on 22 points and 15 rebounds. The match was Tatum’s fourth in a row with at least 30 points.
