The Indiana Pacers are on a fast train to nowhere. After losing their big players this past offseason, to free agency or injury, the Pacers have had to rapidly adjust what they expect out o their season going forward. Right now Indiana is 1-4 and coming off of a close loss to the Washington Wizards.
The Pacers are now heading to the TD Garden to take on the equally hapless Boston Celtics. Boston is 1-3 on the year and not likely to get a whole bunch better as the season progresses.
The Pacers are 24th in the league in points scored and 2nd in the league in rebounding. This has made them a top 10 defensive unit that continually drops games due to a stagnant offense. The Pacers have been without their starting guards and have been forced to put Donald Sloan into the line up. Sloan has responded by playing out of his mind and he is coming off of a 31 point 7 assist night.
The Boston Celtics are lead by the play of Rajon Rondo because he creates offense for everyone else. Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger are enjoying resurgent years behind Rondo's offensive attack. They'll likely put up big numbers in Indiana.

Free NBA Pick:
The Pacers are so injured at the guard spots that they are picking up guys off the street and having to play them starter minutes. Indiana has played well considering how many of their main unit is on the sideline. Problem is the injuries are mounting and it finally costs them in blowout loss tonight. Final Score Prediction, Boston Celtics win and cover ATS 101-88.
