The Indiana Pacers have the Washington Wizards in a world of hurt with a chance to close out the Wiz in Game 5 after taking a 3-1 lead in the series over the weekend in D.C.
The biggest challenge facing the Pacers now is making sure they force the Wizards to actually beat them, as opposed to contributing to any setbacks. Frank Vogel noted at shootaround (via Scott Agness) that the Pacers need to limit their turnovers and keep the Wizards out of transition.
That task is often easier said than done for the Pacers as they put themselves in a bind in Games 1 and 4 with all of the donations which fueled the Wizards going the other way. The Pacers rarely avoid stumbling with such self-inflicted wounds and doing it twice in a row would be too much to ask.
