Following a lengthy nine-day All-Star break which saw the Indiana Pacers be well-represented in Salt Lake City, the team will finally be back on the hardwood to kick off a final hurrah for a postseason shot.

Awaiting them at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse will be the NBA-leading Boston Celtics, which have had the league’s best record for most of the season. This will provide a tough, yet exciting test for the Pacers as they try to see where they stand against one of the association’s elite squads.

The Celtics swept the season series last season against the Pacers. Boston remains ahead in the all-time series, 104-83, though Indiana has already beaten them earlier this season in a big 117-112 upset at the TD Garden.

Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtics Prediction

The Pacers should remain in the postseason hunt, but their quest for a win to kickstart their post All-Star push could come later with the Celtics coming to town for arguably their most difficult home game yet. With Jaylen Brown set to return from injury, look for Boston to overpower Indiana at home for a revenge win.
