Eastern Conf Semifinals: Washington Wizards at Indiana Pacers
In Game 1, both teams looked a lot like they did in their first round series, meaning Washington played well, looked fresh, and beat Indiana at both ends of the floor. Indiana, meanwhile, looked sluggish, and out-manned. The Pacers got no help on the inside from their All-Star Center--and no help means just that, no rebounds and no points--and played no perimeter defense, allowing the Wizards to shoot 63% from behind the arc. Washington hasn't really played a bad game in the Playoffs, so the Pacers have to step up and compete at that level, or they will see themselves in a bigger hole after this game.
