Series Recap: Celtics Lead 2-0

The Celtics find themselves with a 2-0 series lead after a 126-110 win in game 2. The series could very easily be tied 1-1. In game 1, it was a back-and-forth battle for the entire 4th quarter. Jaylen Brown nailed a three-pointer with 6 seconds left to send the game into overtime where the Celtics outlasted the Pacers 133-128.

Now, the Pacers are desperate to get a win in the series and keep themselves from falling into a 3-0 hole. The Pacers have shot well from the field in both games as they shot 52.4% in game 2 and 53.5% in game 1. They will need a great performance tonight to slow down the Celtics who have been rolling in these playoffs.
