(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – The battle for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference is likely going to be decided tonight when the Indiana Pacers host the Boston Celtics.
Both teams have been deadlocked in the standings but with three games left on the schedule for each team tonight will play a major factor in who gets home court advantage in their all but certain first round matchup in the playoffs.
The Celtics edged the Pacers 114-112 last Friday to give Boston a 2-1 series lead.
“Every game we have to play like it’s our last possession or our last game,” Thaddeus Young said during Thursday’s practice. “We have to get as many wins as possible to keep with that four spot.”
Pacers-Celtics tip-off at 8pm EST.
