Pacers-Celtics Preview

(AP) -- When they last faced the Indiana Pacers in mid-March, the Boston Celtics extended a season-high winning streak that helped make them a serious contender for an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The Pacers now hope to return the favor by dealing the Celtics their fourth straight home defeat Wednesday night when they resume a critical four-game stretch with postseason implications.

Boston (33-41) has taken two of three meetings with Indiana (32-42) after Tyler Zeller had 18 points and Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Brandon Bass each added 16 in a 93-89 road win March 14.
