An offensive show: The Celtics had a couple things going their way against a Pacers team that has been the second-best defense in the NBA all season before the tip. Indiana was coming off a back-to-back in Cleveland and was missing starting center Myles Turner (sore shoulder) but Boston still managed to play some of the prettiest basketball they have all season against an elite opponent. They scored 103 points through three quarters in the blowout victory that included seven different Celtics scoring in double figures for the second straight game. Marcus Morris led the way with a team-high 22 points while Jaylen Brown pitched in with 22 points off the bench, as the hosts pulled away with a massive 39-point second quarter outburst.
