Celtics say Horford available to play vs. Pacers

The Pacers had an absolutely disastrous final minute in their loss to the Celtics

The Pacers had an absolutely disastrous final minute in their loss to the Celtics

IN missed 10 straight shots during the run, finally breaking a almost eight-minute scoring drought with a 3-pointer by Matthews in front of the Celtics' bench.

The Pacers have not said if Oladipo will return for Game 4. After a third-straight victory in the postseason - and Boston's sixth consecutive win over in, all of which have come since Victor Oladipo went down for the season - the Pacers were left scratching their heads for answers.

While prognosticators figured this season's Pacers probably would not finish higher than fourth in the East, they again anticipated a collapse when Oladipo crashed to the floor on January 23 with a season-ending ruptured quad tendon. If they do that, they might win a few games in this series.

The Celtics now lead the Pacers 3-0 in their first round postseason series, and Kyrie Irving has been the key piece that keeps them playing at a high level. "We just gotta figure out how to get off to a good start and we'll be good".

The 27-year-old finished with 19 points, 10 assists and five rebounds on the night and in a game that could have gone either way, he was the difference down the stretch.

The Celtics' second-best scorer, Jayson Tatum, is hot on Irving's heels, pouring in 26 points in Wednesday's Game 2 victory after adding 15 points in Game 1. IN has kept Boston's offense in check and dictated the pace of play. Aron Baynes is strong and plucky but can't elevate or move his feet quickly enough on help defense.

The real star of the night was Pascal Siakam though. Boston is 2 in the league in rebounding with 51.5 boards per game and stand tied for 11 with 20 assists per contest. The Pacers will be rueing their missed chances after blowing that 12-point lead in Game 2, but they've been tough to beat at home all season and with so much on the line, I think the home crowd can get them over the line here. Entering the fourth quarter, the Pacers held a 79-68 lead. Thanks to a combination of Boston's offense cooling off considerably (just 18 points in the second quarter) and allowing in to score 33 points in that same time frame, the 41-28 first quarter lead quickly dissipated into a 61-59 deficit for the Celtics at half. It's why the Celtics swung for the fences to trade for him in the first place. Don't listen to any of these fools who complain that he is the reason the team has underachieved this season. Sure. Does he love to hear himself ramble? Too much talent. Too many guys wanting the ball.

We can tell you it's leaning over, and it also says one side of the spread hits in over 50 percent of simulations. "It was a gritty win".

Bruins protest Auston Matthews' controversial Game 5 goal
The Bruins pressed hard after the goal, created a couple of chances and were stopped by Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen . I don't know, maybe he should have scored a goal as well? Just be in a good spot for the [defensemen] and communicating.

For Indiana, it has been a nightmare of a series.

Just like that, a seven-point halftime lead had turned into a 60-48 deficit.

"That's where the big test is", Irving said. Definitely ain't going to be no quit in us. "I'm looking forward to that challenge".
