The action gets started at 7:30PM Eastern Time over NBA TV between two Eastern conference playoff contenders as the Boston Celtics will host the Indiana Pacers. Heading into play on Tuesday the Boston Celtics were clinging to the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern conference by a ½ game to Indiana Pacers. The Nets are tied with Boston but the Celtics hold the tiebreaker so the Pacers must jump two teams to get in the playoffs now with only nine games remaining as Indiana faced Brooklyn on Tuesday night. The Pacers are on a back to back in this spot while the Boston Celtics will have a day of rest after their 12 point road win at Charlotte on Monday night. Indiana had played well in recent weeks to get in the playoff picture but team hit a wall in mid-March as they began a six game losing streak that ended on March 25th with a two point road win at Washington. They had struggled for points during their skid but have averaged over 100 points in their past three games entering their game at Brooklyn on Tuesday.
The late night game gets going at 10PM Eastern Time on NBA TV as the Portland Trailblazers will host the LA Clippers. The Trailblazers currently hold the fourth seed in the Western conference and the Clippers are the fifth seed entering play on Tuesday. Those with seeds 1-4 in the Western conference will have home court advantage when the playoffs start in just over three weeks. The Clippers will be on a back to back as they have a tough home task against Golden St on Tuesday night. LA returned home off a 3-0 road trip with wins over the Knicks, Celtics and 76ers. The Trailblazers will have Tuesday off after a 109-86 home victory against Phoenix on Monday that extended Portland’s winning streak to four games. Teams don’t want to fall behind to Portland late in games as they are the number one free throw shooting team in the league by hitting on 79.8% from the charity stripe.
