The Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics both play in the 2nd leg of their back to back as they get set to be featured in game 1 of 2 on ESPN Wednesday night.
The Pacers used a giant 4th quarter to propel themselves to a home win over the Suns.
The Celtics became the latest victim to the hot New York Knicks, as they fell 120-114, which was their 5th loss in a row.
The Pacers grabbed a win in their first leg of the back to back, giving them wins now in 3 of their last 4.
Indiana had a 36 point 4th quarter to pull away for a 116-97 win over the Suns. The Pacers shot 51.9 percent as a team and this win was important in many ways. This marked one of just two home games over the next 23 days for the Pacers. They’ll hit the road for a majority of their next month.
However, home or away won’t matter if they get the production like they did last night. Paul George, George Hill and C.J. Miles combined for 60 points in the win.
Indiana’s recent losses have come from many late game mistakes including turnovers and defensive breakdowns. Things haven’t been so bad as they’ve lost their last 5 by 4 points or less.
Indiana has beat the Celtics twice this season, including an 11 point win last time these two teams met.
Boston has gone in the opposition direction and things don’t look like they’re getting any better for them.
Boston has dropped 5 straight, including a set back to the Knicks 120-114 on Tuesday night. Boston had a solid offensive performance, but what has troubled them all season long, their defense, got the best of them on Tuesday.
Isaiah Thomas led the way with 34 points on Tuesday as he continues to produce offensively.
Avery Bradley returned to the lineup after missing 3 straight games, but his production just wasn’t there. Bradley has been the teams most reliable 3 point guy, but missed all 6 three pointers in his return.
The Celtics do lead the NBA in turnovers forced per game with 16.5.

Free NBA Prediction:
Boston has just played too sketchy to back right now. With both teams on a back to back, nobody has an advantage in terms of fatigue either.

The Pacers consistent play should be able to continue here against a team just horrific on defense.
