  • Pacers Celtics enter playoff matchup looking for redemption

The Celtics outscored IN 26-8 IN the third with a flurry of three-pointers on 9/21 overall shooting, while the Pacers were 2/19.

Morris, who was recently bumped from the starting lineup in favor of center Aron Baynes, nearly singlehandedly kept the Celtics afloat by scoring 12 of their next 14 points. Darren Collinson is dishing five assists and Domantas Sabonis is grabbing nine rebounds. Before you make any Pacers vs. Celtics picks, listen to what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

For the rest of the coming week, apart from a few light showers, it looks like it will be mainly dry with sunny spells. The first covers counties Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Cork and Kerry, until 7pm today, and warns of gusts up to 110kmh.

I keep looking back at the March 25 meeting between these two teams (Note: This was after the Pacers lost Victor Oladipo for the season, so similar lineups to what we'll see in this series), when the Celtics won 114-112 but didn't cover as seven-point home favorites. Boston got the first basket of the second quarter - a nifty euro-step finish in transition by Gordon Hayward - but in rattled off nine consecutive points and carried that lead into the break thanks in part to Boston's 32.5 percent shooting from the floor, 23.5 percent shooting from three and 10 turnovers, which led to 11 points. The Boston Celtics are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line.

IN started the third quarter with a seven-point lead after a nice first half, but the Celtics started fast in the third quarter, scoring the period's first seven points to tie the game at 45. They continued to struggle to score and at the 5:21 mark in the final quarter, Boston led by 20, 79-59, and the game was effectively over. It entered Week 26 of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season with a sterling 292-234 record on all top-rated picks, returning more than $4,000 in profit to anybody following them.

The Celtics lead the series 1-0. The over is 5-2 in Pacers last 7 overall. Since Victor Oladipo went down for the season, the Pacers always seem to have a stretch in the game where nothing falls and scoring becomes almost impossible. But there was a gradual decrescendo, as the Celtics managed to tally just 6 points in the first six minutes of play.
