Over the past two games, the Celtics have outscored the Pacers 34-18 and outshot then 58% to 26% in the final six minutes. We'll see if that trend holds today.

Kyrie cooks Young with saucy handles (0:24)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

The fact Kyrie Irving and Al Horford are a combined 4-for-21 and the Celtics only trail 60-56 is a testament to just how limited the Pacers are offensively.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Pacers lead 49-47 at halftime here in Indy. Pacers has another clunker offensively, shooting 39 percent, but lead thanks to the Celtics committing 11 turnovers and going 3-15 themselves from 3-point range.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Still a ton of empty seats here in Indianapolis, but a massive dunk by Myles Turner on Gordon Hayward has finally injected some life into the building after another brick-filled first half for both teams.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

In a very on-brand quarter for both teams in this series, Indiana leads 23-21 after one here in Game 4 after the Pacers shot 8/24 from the field, and the Celtics shot 8/22.

Marcus Morris was being looked at on Boston's bench after contesting a Tyreke Evans drive. Looked like he took a knee into his right hip/side. But after checking out of the game because of it, he's now coming back in.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

In a start perfectly in line with how this series has gone, the Celtics made their first three shots - only to miss their next six. Meanwhile, the Pacers have scored 13 straight points.

Victor Oladipo is here in Indianapolis for the first time since he suffered a ruptured quad tendon on Jan. 26. Gets a nice standing ovation when he was shown on the Jumbotron.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

A perfect start for the Celtics, who have scored eight points in the first 95 seconds to jump out to an 8-0 lead. With the Pacers already down 3-0 in the series, a big first quarter by the Celtics could be a knockout blow.

Kobe details a Kyrie mistake in Game 3 (1:02)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Brad Stevens says Marcus Smart had a ‬"good workout" yesterday, but immediately follows up by saying he doesn't know how, or if, that impacts his return. Smart initially suffered his torn oblique muscle two weeks ago today.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Pacers coach Nate McMillan on his team's mindset down 3-0 to the Celtics: "In this situation you can do one of three things: give up, give in or give it all you've got. We chose to give it all you've got."
