Boston Celtics: 3 takeaways from Game 1 vs. Pacers

NBA Playoff Previews Boston Celtics vs. Indiana Pacers

The Pacers play the Celtics at 7 p.m. and you can hear the game of 1070 The Fam, and watch it on TNT and Fox Sports Indiana.

Wednesday's clash with Boston gives the Pacers another shot at stealing homecourt advantage from the fourth-seeded Celtics before the series shifts back to IN for Games 3 and 4.

IN struggled against the Celtics throughout the regular season, losing three of four - including their last two meetings in March. IN will head into Wednesday night with a 4-12 against the spread record in their last 16 road games versus teams with winning records at home. The Celtics (49-33) overcame a late four-game losing streak to win six of eight down the stretch and secure home-court advantage in the first round of the NBA Playoffs 2019 as the No. 4 seed.

It looked ugly at first as the Pacers led by seven at the half.

Carter believes there will be enormous pressure on Irving going into the playoffs, but backs the six-time NBA All-Star to take it on and affect games and quarters like he did during the regular season.

Irving continued on how he and his team can build on Game 1, whether it was a win or loss, "when you look back at it and see some of the mistakes and some of the things you can correct going forward I think that can really make a huge impact for the players in the locker room". "And it just doesn't have to be on the offensive end".

The Pacers have been impressive without Victor Oladipo, with Bojan Bogdanovic picking up a lot of the scoring and creation load and Myles Turner developing into a fringe Defensive Player of the Year candidate. When the dust settled, Boston outscored IN 26-8 IN the period and led 64-53.

As Morris fielded questions about his 20-point performance against the Indiana Pacers, his 9-month old son - Marcus Morris Jr., affectionately known as "Benji" - sat atop his lap in a bite-sized No. 13 jersey.

Celtics: Outrebounded the Pacers 55-42. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 22.2 percent from beyond the arc and 57.1 percent from the free throw line. And of those 12 points, five came after Brad Stevens had emptied the Celtics' bench.

The Boston Celtics' second season is off to a good start. Jayson Tatum (15 points), Al Horford (10) and Gordon Hayward (10) also tallied double figures. The Celtics never really got going offensively, but they never really needed to in a double-digit victory.
