The Pacers return to action at the Fieldhouse on Tuesday when the Celtics maker their final regular season visit to Indy.
The Pacers are 2-1 so far in the series so a win would lock up a tie breaker advantage, should the blue and gold go on a run to move up the standings over the last month of the season. The game tonight begins a stretch of three difficult games (including Toronto and Oklahoma City) that could go a long way in determining if the Pacers have a late run in them this year.
Health will be a key on Tuesday, with the backcourt trio of Ty Lawson, George Hill and Rodney Stuckey all questionable. Guard play makes the Celtics go this year so keeping an eye on which Pacers guards are available and how well they are able to play will likely determine the end result.
The Celtics should be rested and ready to go despite missing Jae Crowder (ankle) considering they had three full days off after playing Houston on Friday. To make matters worse, the C's dropped that game to the Rockets which forced them to stew on the L while prepping for the Pacers.
