Pacers can't capitalize on strong start, lose season series to Celtics

Team news and Injuries

In the NBA’s health and safety regulations, only Payton Pritchard is out, while Brodrick Thomas is labeled as probable with lower back discomfort. Questionable players include Malcolm Brogdon (sore Achilles), Isaiah Jackson (reconditioning), and Torrey Craig (reconditioning).

Goga Bitadze, Justin Anderson, TJ Warren, and Caris LeVert are all on the bench for Indiana, while TJ McConnell is sidelined due to ligament surgery on his right wrist. If the Celtics play to their full potential throughout the game, the Indiana Pacers will be in for a long night.

Celtics vs Pacers Preview

The Indiana Pacers needed a career night from both Domantas Sabonis and Lance Stephenson to snap a six-game losing run. The Utah Jazz had no answer for Sabonis without three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert cluttering up the interior. Lance Stephenson, a 10-day contract player, is proving to be one of the finest moves an NBA club has made this season.

The Boston Celtics replied to Ime Udoka’s criticism by playing aggressively and energetically from beginning to end. The Celtics’ defense was crucial once again in their victory. Good things generally happen when their defense is on point like it was against the Knicks. The Green Machine held New York to 42 points in the first half and then outdid themselves in the second half, allowing just 33 points.

Celtics vs Pacers: Head to Head record

During the regular season, the Celtics and the Indiana Pacers played 182 games, with the Celtics winning 101 games and the Pacers winning 81. The Celtics have won three of their previous five meetings with the Pacers.
