Pacers vs. Celtics: How to watch live stream, TV channel, NBA start time

Through 3 Quarters

The Boston Celtics need a win to get to even, but right now it could go either way. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Indiana Pacers 89-75 three quarters in.

Boston has been relying on shooting guard Jaylen Brown, who has shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and has recorded 28 points and five rebounds, and small forward Jayson Tatum, who has 22 points and four assists. A double-double would be Brown’s third in a row.

Indiana has been relying on the performance of power forward Domantas Sabonis, who has 17 points and six assists along with five boards.

the Pacers have lost 95% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

The Boston Celtics have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Indiana Pacers at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

Indiana is out to make up for these teams’ matchup on Monday. The Celtics won 101-98 over Indiana in overtime. Center Robert Williams III and shooting guard Jaylen Brown were among the main playmakers for Boston as the former posted a double-double on 14 points and 12 boards in addition to three blocks and the latter dropped a double-double on 26 points and 15 rebounds along with six dimes. Williams III has also now had at least three blocks in his past three games.

Boston is now 20-21 while Indiana sits at 15-26. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Celtics enter the game with 5.98 blocked shots per game on average, good for second best in the league. The Pacers are not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they rank fourth in the league when it comes to blocked shots per game, with 5.88 on average. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
