Anticipating high scoring action as Celtics and Pacers clash in Eastern Conference Finals

On May 20, it is highly improbable that either team will struggle with generating strong offense as the Indiana Pacers travel to face the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night, considering their track record.

Indiana, seeded sixth, was the top scorer in the NBA with an average of 123.3 points per game during the regular season. Boston, seeded first, ranked second with an average of 120.6 points per contest in the regular season.

In Game 7 of the conference semifinals on Sunday, the Pacers achieved a remarkable feat, shooting a record-breaking 67.1 percent from the field against the New York Knicks, ultimately winning with a score of 130-109. Tyrese Haliburton played a crucial role in this victory, scoring 26 points.

According to Myles Turner of Indiana, he takes great pride in his team. He considers this group to be the most remarkable one he has encountered during his time here. They have a strong sense of camaraderie and put the team’s success above individual egos. Despite having multiple players capable of scoring 15 or more points each game, they were able to prevent egos from becoming an issue early on in the season.
