  • Pacers ready to tip-off playoffs against Celtics

He also grabbed seven defensive rebounds en route to Boston's 84-74 victory. "I just really want to be aggressive and really be the head of the snake". The Celtics did fall 11 points behind early, but this game never felt entirely out of reach until it was Boston in control. The Pacers also made just six of their 27 3-point attempts.

The Pacers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Conference Quarterfinals games, 7-16 ATS in their last 23 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games.

After Pacers shooting guard Wesley Matthews drilled a 3-point shot to give IN a 14-6 lead, Stevens called a timeout and substituted Morris and forward Gordon Hayward into the game.

Cory Joseph had 14 points for the Pacers. Morris finished the first with 12 points. "We were getting wide open looks and they were rattling in-and-out or they were just missed shots". They have balance and depth but they don't quite have the top-level talent to hang with the Celtics at their best. "We have to make our adjustments, come out of this game, and be ready to take him out next game". IN scored 29 points in the second half, and the quarter and half were both its worst of the season.

Boston's big run started with a dunk by Jaylen Brown (check it out below), but Irving dominated the third quarter, dropping eight points and dishing out three assists while the Pacers scored just eight points on 2-for-19 shooting.

"I think what we were doing out there today was good for us, we just didn't make shots in that third quarter". This included two wins over the fifth-seeded Pacers (48-34), who used the NBA's top scoring defense (104.7 points per game) to help overcome the loss of star Victor Oladipo to a season-ending knee injury. He lauded his teammate for his ability to rejuvenate the team after its sluggish start.

In the third, however, two things happened that allowed the Celtics to take control of the game completely: Kyrie Irving woke up, and IN went icy cold from the floor. "It's not so much about scoring as it is about the attitude coming in and really just throwing himself into the game". "I thought we lost a little confidence".

Both teams shot under 40 percent for the game. In the days leading up to Sunday, Morris said he used his time to relax, reflect on the season, and "get right".
