The Celtics performance was a far cry from its previous matches and is not within the League’s best. The Celtics defeated the Pacers with a score of 84-74 but it was NBA professional basketball at its worst. PG Kyrie Irving and SF Marcus Morris delivered 20 points each rallying behind 11 points at the half. SF Jayson Tatum followed with 15, PF Al Horford made 10 points and pounded 11 rebounds while SF Gordon Hayward had 10 to help the Celtics win over the Pacers.

Boston overturned a game which critics called short of a a rock fight and managed to put a lead by as much as 22 points in the 4th quarter with 112.4 ppg at %46.5 from the field while restricting foes to score at 108.0 ppg. The Celtics are averaging with 44.5 rebounds, 26.3 assists, 5.3 blocks, and  8.6 steals per contest. Irving is the leading scorer of Boston with 23.8 ppg, 48.7% in FG shooting, and 87.3% from the free throw line.

Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtics. The NBA Pick for this match is Boston Celtics -7.5. If the Boston Celtics play poor NBA basketball in its recent match, the Pacers are even worse that they managed to score with 29 points in 24 minutes of regulation time. Boston PG Marcus Smart was found to have a torn oblique on his left side and will miss the first and second rounds of the Eastern playoffs. An under is probable with  Boston ranking 7th in defense and Indiana at 3rd in the same category. Predicted to win this match is Boston to a score of 103-95.
