Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers prediction

The Boston Celtics needed overtime to overcome the Indiana Pacers 133-128 in game 1 despite the hosts being overwhelming favorites going into the game. A Jaylen Brown 3-pointer with 10 seconds to go helped Celtics tie the game and take it to overtime when it looked like they were in for a shock loss. Overall, the Celtics had good returns from their star players – Jayson Tatum (36 points), Jrue Holiday (28 points) and Jaylen Brown (26 points)

An impressive performance saw the Indiana Pacers come from 13 points down in the 3rd quarter and were leading the game by 3 points with just 10 seconds to go. Losing from this position can be demoralizing, but the Pacers can regroup and correct the mistakes in their performance. In particular, they were hurt by the many turnovers – 22 in total – and this is one area they will need to improve.

Game 1 was expected to be a high-scoring game and it more than delivered. By the end of regular time, a total of 234 points had been scored. We foresee game 2 also producing another high score, so our Boston Celtic vs Indiana Pacers prediction is Total Over 222.5 Points.

Tip: Total Over 222.5 Points
