Indiana’s matchup with the Celtics will be difficult. Now that you know that, here are our predictions for the Pacers In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals.
Rick Carlisle’s team will be under intense scrutiny as they play the Boston Celtics in the In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals. We’ll be predicting the Pacers In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals ahead of the Pacers vs. Celtics game.
The Pacers are led by star guard Tyrese Haliburton, who is having a phenomenal season. Haliburton is averaging 27 points per game, along with 11.8 assists. The 23-year-old guard is also shooting 51.9 percent from the field and 44.7 percent from three. Haliburton has established himself as one of the best point guards in the NBA with his play this season. He has always been a great playmaker, but he has become an elite scorer this season, leading Indiana to become one of the best offensive teams in the league.
The Pacers are 10-8 this season, which has them in sixth place in the East. Sure enough, however, their Quarterfinals matchup in the In-Season Tournament won’t be easy as they take on the number one seed Boston Celtics.
Following an incredible offseason, Boston is 15-4 and has been outstanding. To complement Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the Celtics added star big Kristaps Porzingis and guard Jrue Holiday. With Derrick White and Al Horford as excellent role players, they have a core of four elite players.
Indiana will face a difficult opponent in this game, but since it is a single-elimination tournament, anything can happen. Now that we’ve covered that, let’s get to our Pacers In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals forecasts.
