The Washington Wizards and the Indiana Pacers will fight it out in round 2 of the NBA 2014 Playoffs this season. Game 1 takes place on Monday night and both teams will be hoping to get off to the perfect start with a win. The game will start at 7 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the TNT network, or online through free live stream (details below).
The Pacers will know how important it is they win tonight and get their series off to a good start. They have home court advantage and will be hoping their fans at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis can cheer them on to victory.
Indiana managed to put two straight wins together to make it through to the second round of the Playoffs. They were struggling against the Atlanta Hawks and only just made it through, going all the way through to a decisive Game 7.
This will be the third straight season that Indiana have made it through to the Eastern Conference Semi Finals. However, this will be the first time they meet the Washington Wizards in the postseason.
The Wizards will be confident, having eliminated the Chicago Bulls in Round 1. Coach Randy Wittman, a Ben Davis High School product, has put together a solid unit who will give the Pacers a big challenge for a place in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Wizards are seeded 5th in this year's Playoffs, and will be hoping to take full advantage by going all the way. They have not made the postseason for six seasons, and many feel the team is onto something special this season.
