Nationally, no one is expecting the Pacers to win a first round series against a talented Celtics team. Locally, even fans are skeptical following a poor finish to the regular season. So, can the Pacers surprise everyone and take four games from Brad Stevens, Gordon Hayward, and company?
Yesterday's two Game 1 surprises - Magic over Raptors and Nets over Sixers - may give you some hope, but Indiana still has an uphill climb. They're just 1-3 against the Celtics this season and 4-18 against teams with a winning record since January 1st.
