Pacers One Win Away From Playoff Spot
They had more magic than the Wizards, but can they wrestle bears? After taking down Washington 99-95 in a dramatic 3.5-hour double-overtime thriller, the Pacers, who have won their last six games, have become the eighth seed, just above the Brooklyn Nets. Today Indiana will face the powerful Grizzlies and try to pull off an extraordinary end-of-year run. A win over Memphis — or a Nets loss — would put Indiana on pace for a fifth straight playoff appearance.
