Celtics Defeat Pacers in Playoffs, Now Lead Series 2-0 #

Jaylen Brown scored 40 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 126-110 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 of their playoff series. Derrick White and Jayson Tatum also contributed heavily to the Celtics’ win, combining for 86 points. Pascal Siakam led the Pacers with 28 points. Despite shooting well from the field and beyond the arc, the Pacers couldn’t match the Celtics’ dominance. Boston capitalized on their size and physicality, scoring a majority of their points in the paint. The Pacers will need to improve their resistance and address an injury concern if they want to turn the series around. Game 3 will be held in Indiana.
