(1) INDIANA PACERS (3-2) AT (5) WASHINGTON WIZARDS (2-3), 8 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Indiana Pacers will once again try to eliminate the Washington Wizards as the two meet Thursday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at the Verizon Center.
The Wizards were on the doorstep of elimination, but dominated the Pacers in every facet of the game Tuesday night, thumping Indiana, 102-79, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Effort and physicality were lacking from the Pacers in an elimination game, while the Wizards destroyed Indiana in both categories.
Perhaps the most telling statistic of the night was on the glass. Washington outrebounded the Pacers, 62-23, and pulled down 18 offensive rebounds, which nearly matched Indiana's total.
