The Indiana Pacers will need to figure out who can score points — something that confounded them in Game One of their NBA playoff series against the Boston Celtics — if they plan to climb back into the series by beating Boston in Game Two. The first game, per Basketball Reference, saw the Pacers — who have been missing lead scorer Victor Oladipo since January, when he underwent knee surgery — put up only 74 points, and just eight in the third quarter.
On the other hand, the Celtics were not a whole lot better, scoring just 84. The Celtics will need to improve on a 36.7 percent field goal percentage to guarantee a win in the game that will live stream from Boston.

Boston also committed 20 turnovers in Sunday’s game. With this questional feat, Boston became only the fourth of 23 teams to ever commit at least 20 turnovers — while shooting under 40 percent — to actually win a playoff game, according to ESPN.
“It was hard,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens told ESPN. “It wasn’t pretty. You’ve got to stay together, and you’ve got to grind it out.”
The Celtics have now won nine of their last 12 games against the Pacers, and have been installed as 7.5 point favorites for Wednesday’s contest by Las Vegas oddsmakers, according to SB Nation.
