The Boston Celtics will be seeking revenge when they go on the road to face the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night. The teams faced off for the first time this NBA season last Sunday with the Pacers narrowly edging the Celtics 108-107.
Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis made the game-deciding layup plus a foul with only 8.4 seconds remaining. He failed to convert on the free-throw attempt, leaving the door wide open for the Celtics to take the lead and win the game.
All-Star forward Jayson Tatum missed the shot that would have given the Celtics the victory. Much to the Celtics chagrin, it was the Pacers who celebrated in the end.
The NBA released the schedule for the first half of the season which can be viewed here.
