The Indiana Pacers can force a game seven on Sunday with another home victory here. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 94.2 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 94.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Paul George is averaging 28.8 points and six rebounds while George Hill is averaging 12.8 points and 1.8 assists. Monta Ellis is dishing 3.6 assists and Myles Turner is grabbing six rebounds.

The Pacers are allowing 26.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.6 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have won seven of their last 10 home games.
Both of these teams have had issues being consistent in this series, so this is really tough to cap. However, the home team has played far better than the road team. It's tough because you're not sure which team is going to show up. We do know that this is a must-win for the Pacers, and they've had head and shoulders the best player in this series. Indiana is also starting to get a boost from Hill, Turner and others.
Like the Boston-Atlanta series, I think we're seeing another game seven.
