The Pacers are trying to win this game, to advance for the playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, slamming a plate of five games for the Celtics Monday night. The much awaited NBA match game of the Boston Celtics against The Indiana Pacer on March 28, 2011.
Pacers (32-42) are not as comfortable now, entering this game with a slim hold on the eighth. Indiana is just a game ahead of ninth place in Charlotte and two in front of Milwaukee for the 10th. Indiana has played two games more than his persecutors, and the lead was endangering others after a 100-88 loss to Detroit on Saturday after falling 110-93 to Sacramento the night before.
While the Boston (50-21) has won a championship for the fourth consecutive division, where a stretch of 6.5 in the final position of 10 games is not too worrying. The Celtics are only playing for seeding. They are second in the conference, two games behind Chicago and the first half-game ahead of Miami for third place.
