Indiana Pacers Team News

The Pacers failed to get a break in Boston, although they were very close to winning in the first match. They failed to stay focused until the very end, which the Celtics took advantage of and made a turnover.

In the second match, they opened the match well, but with a series of 17:0 at the beginning of the second quarter, the Celtics took the lead, which they held until the very end of the match. To make the problem worse for the Pacers, Tyrese Haliburton was injured and is questionable for game number three. He renewed the injury that kept him out of action for a month this season.

Excellent match number two was played by Pascal Siakam, who scored 28 points. Much more is expected from Turner, who is one of the Pacers’ key players. In the second match, Turner received two personal fouls very early on, which completely threw him out of focus.

The big problem for the Pacers is the defense, especially their “lazy” comeback in defense. The Celtics took advantage of the Pacers’ defensive indolence on several occasions and punished them with easy points in transition.

The Celtics survived the first game and showed a championship mentality. In the second match, the winner was never in doubt. The Celtics played safely first of all in the attack, while they raised the defense to a higher level and managed to slow down the Pacers as much as possible.

In this playoff, the Celtics have not been defeated in any match as guests, and now they want to break even in the duel with the Pacers. A victory in match number three would almost certainly mean a place in the Finals. A particularly important factor is the consumption of players during the entire playoff. As the playoffs progress, the players are more and more exposed to injuries and, as a rule, the most complete teams win the trophy.

The Celtics are without Kristaps Porzingis, who has missed eight straight playoff games, but Mazzulla does not need to push him while the Celtics are playing well.

In the second match of this series, Brown achieved his career record in the playoffs for the number of points scored, he scored 40 points and was the absolute leader of the Celtics. Jrue Holiday, who played badly in the previous two series, improved his form quite a bit. Bad match number two was played by Tatum, who in the end had 23 points, although he scored only 4 points in the first half, the least this season.

Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtics Prediction

The Celtics were the favorites in every match in this year’s playoffs, so that is also the case in match number three against the Pacers. It is especially important to know whether Haliburton will be available for the Pacers, but even with him, the Celtics have a much better chance of breaking than if the Pacers win. The key factor in this match, as in the entire series, will be the Celtics’ defense, but we expect a much more aggressive and better Jayson Tatum, who played a bad match number two.
