On Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers will play the Washington Wizards at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. Game time is set at 8PM ET.
The Indiana Pacers are making a strong push for a playoff spot after a tumultuous three-week stretch. They are one game behind 7th place Celtics but are virtually out of reach due to Boston's tiebreaker advantage. They still have a chance for the last playoff spot but they must finish with a better record against Brooklyn to advance.
The Washington Wizards is almost assured of the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference. They could either face Toronto or Chicago in the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs. Veteran player Paul Pierce believes that his team still needs to improve and sharpen their skills because the playoffs are a different game.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Indiana Pacers as a 7-point favorite to beat the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.
