Another night, another loss for the Indiana Pacers, who struggled to keep up with the Boston Celtics, who blew out Indiana by the end of the game, a fitting conclusion to what may be the nail in the coffin to Indiana's postseason chances. The Pacers struggled with everything from hustle to rebounding to defense, to free throw shooting as they lose out on another tiebreaking opportunity.

George Hill led Indiana with 19 points and Rodney Stuckey scored 16 of the bench. C.J. Miles scored 12 and David West put in 10 to account for all four double figure scorers for Indiana as Boston scored 32 fourth quarter points to put a stamp on the 100-87 victory.
