The Boston Celtics play the Indiana Pacers at the
Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana on Wednesday, April 12th. The game will be at 7:00 PM EST and will be televised by
.

The Indiana Pacers have not met their high expectations of play this season. During the offseason, the Pacers were thought to be a contending team in the East and would certainly boast a superior record at the end of the season. Surprisingly, they have only won thirty-seven of their seventy-seven games in the very competitive Central Division. The Pacers still have a very good team, though. Jermaine O'Neal is one of the best big men in the league, playing a face-up mid-range game with great interior defense. Stephen Jackson is a decent scorer and defender. Peja
Stojakovic is one of the best shooters in the league. He will be guarding Tony Allen, most likely. Stephen Jackson will have the tougher assignment on Pierce. Jamaal Tinsley is a good ball-handler and passer and has improved his shot. The Pacers have a good bench consisting of a great defending and rebounding big man in Jeff Foster, an all-around rookie in Danny Granger, and capable veterans filling out the bench.

The Indiana Pacers'
last game was against the
New York Knicks
, W, 82-101 (boxscore).

Nice game. Gerald Green is a beast. He looks nervous out there, but that will go with time. He could also use some work on holding onto the ball, but what can he do with 9 1/2 fingers? He's going to be really good some day.

saw that. Green had the #4 (Dunk down the middle on a feed from Tony), #3 (That sweet up and under move as he was floating in air toward the basket), and #1 (His shot from beyond half court with the SC winding down).

That kid has amazing control.
