Myles Turner Pacers NBA

Some will say the Pacers have also had a easy path in the post season to get to where they are now but i truly impressed on how well this teams has played so far this post season and they could make life very difficult for Boston in these Next few games in my opinion,

Game Prediction

Boston Celtics NBA

The Plugs Pick : Pacers +7 -110

The Plugs Prop : Horford Over 17.5 -102


This line tells me that the guys in Vegas are expecting Tyrese Haliburton to sit out this game. Haliburton was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury as i was writing this article so keep checking up on his status before game time.

The Pacers are still unbeaten at home in these playoffs and still have enough scoring to give themselves a shot. Let's not forget Haliburton has been playing hurt to begin with and there's been some games where he wasn't much of a factor offensively and the Pacers still competed. And while his offense would be missed, Haliburton is a liability defensively, so maybe there's a trade-off if he does sit. 

The Celtics have also failed to cover 4 of their last 6 games as favorites of 7 or more points. With or without Haliburton, the Pacers can hang in this game at home. So yes, Give me the points here.

Lets look at Ale Horford now, he has hit 13+ points in the last 5 playoff road games against the Pacers and he has also put up 8+ boards in his last 4 playoff games against the Pacers so I'm loving his chances tonight to clear this number easy! Don't be scared of a sprinkle for his double double sitting at a thick price of +480 either good value on that prop also! Lets have a great night!
