Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers Prediction

The Indiana Pacers have the scoring to win this game, and we know they’ll be up for it at home with a chance to make the semifinals. However, we saw the Celtics and Pacers play a month ago and Boston scored 155 points. While the Pacers score a ton, they don’t play a lick of defense, and it’s why they lose every other game despite being first in scoring and field goal percentage. You can argue this line should be steeper than it is. Give me the Celtics and the chalk.
