Pacers Links: Pacers look to get better at home against Celtics

New, comments

After a rugged three game road trip left the Pacers with losses in their last four games, the Blue and Gold returns to action at the Fieldhouse to face the Boston Celtics.

Forget stringing together a few wins over the next week as the schedule lightens up. The Pacers need to focus on winning one game. The one they play Tuesday night at home against the Boston Celtics.

You can't put together a winning streak without winning the first game, so while the Pacers focus on playing better at both ends of the floor, the first step toward turning this thing around is getting that first win.

At least the Pacers won't be looking past the C's. After destroying Boston in their first two meetings, the Pacers escaped Beantown with a hard-fought W in their last meeting. Now the Celtics arrive at the Fieldhouse coming off of wins over Brooklyn and Detroit.

The Pacers have complained about every opponent giving them their best shot lately. Seems like it is past time for the Pacers to return the favor.
