Things got a bit dicey for the Indiana Pacers early in the fourth quarter. The Washington Wizards erased an eight point Indiana lead with an 8-2 run, as Bradley Beal pushed the Wizards into the lead with a three pointer to give Washington a 74-73 lead. From that point, the Pacers allowed just two points over the next seven minutes, getting huge buckets down the stretch from David West and Lance Stephenson to piece together a 17-2 run to wrap up the series 4-2 and eliminate the Wizards.

West had a game high 29 points on 13-26 shooting, with all five starters reaching double figures. While West was the foundation of Indiana's success offensively, Lance Stephenson had his best game of the series, scoring 17 points, attacking the rim throughout the night on an 8-13 performance, dishing out eight assists along the way. The Pacers will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, their third straight postseason series.
