Celtics-Pacers Regular Season Recap: An Intense Preview for the Eastern Conference Finals

The Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers look to be thrilling because of their five close games during the regular season. Although the Celtics lead the season series 3-2, each game provided important information about the advantages and disadvantages of both teams.

Tyrese Haliburton’s absence helped the Celtics overwhelm the Pacers 155-104 in the season opener. With eight players scoring in double figures, Boston displayed their offensive prowess, shooting over 50% from the field and 3-point range.

The Pacers exacted revenge in December, overcoming the Celtics 122-112 in the quarterfinals of the In-Season Tournament. The Pacers were led by Haliburton’s triple-double and a well-balanced scoring onslaught, while the Celtics were plagued by turnovers and poor free-throw shooting.

In early January, the teams reunited for back-to-back games in Indiana. Despite Kristaps Porzingis’ early departure from the first game due to an eye ailment, Boston prevailed 118-101. The Celtics were led to victory by Jaylen Brown’s 31 points and Al Horford’s almost triple-double.

In the second game, the Pacers recovered, defeating the Tatum-less Celtics 133-131. Benedict Mathurin’s clinching free throws in the closing seconds were made possible by a contentious overturned foul call.

At TD Garden, the Celtics narrowly defeated the Pacers 129-124 in their final regular-season match. The Celtics had a commanding advantage at the half, but they faltered in the third quarter, letting the Pacers get closer. But Boston’s defensive play in the closing minutes of the game was essential to winning.

Several important lessons were shown by this set of games:

  • Impact of Haliburton: When Haliburton plays, the Pacers are a different squad. His ability to score points and make plays makes him a serious threat to the Celtics.
  • Boston’s Depth: Although they have a large roster with offensive potential, the Celtics’ bench contribution is not always reliable.
  • Turnovers: The series may come down to this because both sides are prone to making mistakes.
  • Late-Game Execution: Exciting finishes have been produced by both teams’ shown ability to produce clutch plays in the last few minutes of the game.
  • Siakam’s Addition: The Pacers are a more difficult opponent because of Pascal Siakam, who gives their attack a new dimension.

Two excellent teams with different approaches are set to face off in the intriguing Eastern Conference Finals. Both teams are keen to prove their mettle on the biggest stage, and their regular-season rivalries have set the setting for a heated series.
