Free Total Pick:
The Pacers need to slow down the game and play top notch defense to have any shot in this series and that needs to start in Game 2. Don’t expect the Wizards to shoot 62.5% from 3-point land like they did in Game 1. Indiana led the league in 3-point defense holding opponents to a 42% average so expect that number to revert back more to the norm on Wednesday. The Pacers held the Wizard to 91 or fewer points in the 3 previous games this season with the highest combined total of 169 points. Take the UNDER 185.
