NBA Playoffs 2019: Celtics vs. Pacers Game 1 live stream

The Indiana Pacers would love to tie up this series at 1-1 before heading home for game three.

Wednesday's clash with Boston gives the Pacers another shot at stealing homecourt advantage from the fourth-seeded Celtics before the series shifts back to IN for Games 3 and 4. Barring some extremely unforeseen events, once the Celtics make it past IN, they will face the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the NBA's best record, best point differential and, most importantly, Giannis Antetokounmpo, the league's best and most valuable player. The Indiana Pacers have lost seven of their last nine road games.

"We just didn't make enough shots", Pacers forward Thaddeus Young said of the third.

While the Raptors and Sixers failed to hold on to their home court advantage on Saturday, the Boston Celtics opened the 2109 NBA Playoffs in triumph at TD Garden. They finished the quarter 2 for 19 from the field. The Celtics outscored IN 26-8 IN the third with a flurry of three-pointers on 9/21 overall shooting, while the Pacers were 2/19.

The Pacers have been impressive without Victor Oladipo, with Bojan Bogdanovic picking up a lot of the scoring and creation load and Myles Turner developing into a fringe Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

Irving and Marcus Morris each scored 20 points, and the Boston rallied in the second half to the beat Indiana Pacers 84-74 on Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.

Points are going to be at a premium in this series, which works for the Pacers but someone has to make shots.

After Pacers shooting guard Wesley Matthews drilled a 3-point shot to give IN a 14-6 lead, Stevens called a timeout and substituted Morris and forward Gordon Hayward into the game.

After going down 43-33 late in the second quarter, the Celtics outscored the Pacers 51-31 from there. And of those 12 points, five came after Brad Stevens had emptied the Celtics' bench. And this team could stand to get more from guys like Gordon Hayward, who only had 10 points or Terry Rozier, who only had five.

After a shaky start, it turned out to be Boston.

The All-Star guard's first half didn't go as planned, scoring just seven points on 3-for-10 shooting with only two assists, but Irving didn't let that diminish his entire game.

A quick 9-2 run for IN to open up the second forced Stevens into a timeout with 9:08 left and the Pacers leading 29-22.
