Indiana Pacers vs. Boston Celtics: Series Price And Pick

Celtics unlucky with 2019 NBA draft pick tiebreakers

Considering their playoff run previous year without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, the Celtics were expected to be among the top contenders, but have underachieved and enter the playoffs as the East's No. 4 seed. That the Celtics were able to only underscores how abominable the Pacers were in the second half, particularly in the third quarter.

Kyrie Irving was unsurprisingly tied for the team's leading scorer with 20 points to match Marcus Morris' impressive effort off the bench. Irving's first possession as a Celtic in the playoffs was an enchanting menagerie of pivots, pump fakes, and indefensible shots. With how familiar these teams are with each other, having played five times already this season, the Pacers will be sure to make adjustments and get back after it in Game 2, trying to steal one on the road. "Then we had open looks that we didn't knock down, and I thought we lost a little confidence".

"We held them to 84 points".

It was a standout performance when most expected him to wilt under the pressure of going head-to-head with Westbrook. Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings and the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.


The Celtics trailed by seven at halftime but held IN to just eight third-quarter points as they took control. "To see the players that have done it before me and really idolize how successful they have been under those bright lights, it's something that you admire and want to be a part of", he added.

Wednesday's clash with Boston gives the Pacers another shot at stealing homecourt advantage from the fourth-seeded Celtics before the series shifts back to IN for Games 3 and 4.

"I think what we were doing out there today was good for us", Pacers forward Thaddeus Young said. "But that third quarter really killed us".

Boston's run included a brief appearance by Celtics Hall of Famer and former Pacers front office executive Larry Bird, who was shown on the big screen during a timeout. In truth, though, the Pacers' issues were as much their own doing as anything the Celtics did.

The period ended with Terry Rozier connecting on an acrobatic 3-pointer with 0.1 secondsremaining to put the Celtics ahead 64-53.

The change paid off with Morris connecting on 3 of 4 field-goal attempts in the period, including two 3-pointers, and scoring 12 points. However, even before Smart's injury, Morris was looked at as one of the team's best defenders and energy players as well. "But it's tough. Those guys are physical.We have a lot to get better at". Irving, the Celtics star, discussed the victory with reporters after the game.
