Slumping Celtics limp into Indy to face hot Pacers

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The surging Indiana Pacers welcome the recently sputtering Boston Celtics into Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Tuesday in a matchup that tips off a crucial stretch of Eastern Conference games for both teams.

The victory closed out a 4-1 road swing for the Pacers, who now embark on a stretch where three of their next four game are against teams that enter Monday: in third place in the Eastern Conference, in sixth place and one game behind Indiana, and in fourth place team and two games ahead of the Pacers in fourth.

Not including Lamb, who was averaging 12.5 points per game at the time of his injury on Feb. 24, Indiana’s lineup features seven players averaging between 9.5 and 18.6 points per game.

Tuesday’s matchup with Indiana is the first of two important road dates for Boston, which fell three games behind Toronto for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, and now only leads Miami by 1 1/2 games.
