I’m on the Pacers ML here. I think the Celtics were lucky to get out with a win in game one, as it was poor shot selection and inexperience that got the Pacers the loss in the series opener. However, I think guys took accountability for Indiana in the post-game presser and recognized where they failed and I think you see a concerted effort in game two to bounce back. The script for the Celtics in the playoffs so far has been win in game one (Even though it was more convincing in game one of the first two series) and come out flat as a pancake in game two. I think there is a bit of an emotional letdown for Boston after such a big rally in game one and like I said, I think there’s a much more focused effort from Indiana to bounce back. If the Pacers can steal a game on the road, that’ll be massive considering they’ve yet to lose at home in the playoffs. Take the points if you want for safety, but the script is what it is for the Celtics. I’m going for max profit and taking the Pacers ML.

Chris’s Pick Indiana Pacers: +310
