(Boston, MA) - The Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics will play their first of three games tonight when the teams meet at the TD Garden in Boston.
The aging Celtics have limped to a 14-17 record and have lost four straight games, including a ten point home defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night.
The Celtics have been outscored by an average of 20 points during their losing streak and have allowed opponents to score over 104 points-per-game during their slide.
The Pacers are on top of the central division with a 19-13 record and have won nine of their last 11 games.
The blue-and-gold pulled out an 89-81 victory over the Washington Wizards two nights ago at Bankers Life Fieldhouse despite shooting 37 percent from the field against the standing worst record in the NBA.
George Hill is expected to return to the Pacers starting lineup tonight after missing two games with a strained right groin.
Tipoff tonight in Boston is at 8:00.
