The Indiana Pacers have a chance to win a playoff series for the first time since 2005 when the bounced back from a tough OT loss at home to beat the Boston Celtics in a Game 7.

The Pacers enter Game 5 looking to celebrate the series win on their home floor in Bankers Life Fieldhouse, something they haven't done since beating the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the 2000 playoffs. Travis Best, y'all.

Once again the Pacers have ample breathing room despite their claims to want to put this series on ice and not return to Orlando. It would sure be nice to see them put the hammer down and go for the kill like they say they want to. There's no reason to think Orlando will bow down tonight unless the Pacers overwhelm them early, so they will have to earn the chance to advance.
