Both the Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers look to break their losing slumps as they meet at the Verizon Center in the NBA regular season. The match is on March 25, 2015 and tip-off is at 7 p.m. ET.
With their current record at 30-40, the Pacers are 10th in the East and are one game behind the Boston Celtics for the last playoff spot.

Even worse is that in their six losses, four of those have been blowouts. They lost 117-98 to the Toronto Raptors, 103-86 to the Chicago Bulls, 123-111 to the Brooklyn Nets and most recently 110-100 to the Houston Rockets. more >>
