The Indiana Pacers are back at it on Saturday night when they host the Boston Celtics a day after dispatching of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Eastern Conference playoff considerations will be in play between the Pacers and the C's tonight. The two teams wouldn't play each other in the first round if the playoffs started today, but they don't and the possibility remains. The Celtics have found their stride just in time for the warm weather and playoffs, recently taking over to top spot in the Atlantic Division while moving Ray Allen into a sixth man role off the bench and starting the more athletic Avery Bradley in the backcourt with Rajon Rondo to put more pressure on opponents.

Fortunately the Pacers have plenty of backcourt players to run with the Celtics so it will once again come down to execution and discipline while trying to establish an advantage in the post. Hmm, sounds a lot like the plan that worked last night against OKC.

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For a Boston perspective, check out Celtics Blog. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
