It’s an Eastern Conference match up on Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Boston Celtics will make the trip to Indianapolis to take on the Indiana Pacers.
This will be the first match up between the two teams. The Celtics have won the last three games played between the two teams.
The Boston Celtics will be playing on the second night of a back to back when they play in this game, after they will have taken on the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
In their last game the Celtics had a little slip up after having such a nice win streak. They struggled early on against the Heat, and couldn’t ever recover, and that led to a 104-98 defeat.
The strength of this Celtics team has been the defense, and that will need to continue in this game. The Pacers are a good offensive team, and the Celtics are going to need to try and slow that down.
Their best strategy in this game is probably going to be to slow down the pace. If they get into an up and down game, they might be upset in this one.
If they slow it down though, they should be alright in this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Indiana Pacers who most people believed would be going through a rebuild this year, but right now they are playing really good basketball, and come into this game with a 10-8 record.
They have won four straight games, and they will also be on the second night of a back to back as they play the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
For the Pacers their strength is on the offensive side of the ball. They come into this game averaging over 108 points per game.
Victor Oladipo scored 21 points in the last game to lead the way although he suffered a bruised right knee in the fourth quarter and his status is up in the air for this one.
To win this game, the Pacers need to try and push the pace. If they push the pace they can exploit the Celtics defense, and that would give them an advantage.
