What channel is Celtics vs. Pacers on today? Time, schedule, live stream for Game 2 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom

The Celtics rallied late in Game 1 on Tuesday night thanks to critical fourth-quarter miscues from the Pacers and a momentum-swinging 3-pointer that sent the contest to overtime.

Jaylen Brown, who finished with 26 points, was the hero for Boston, drilling a corner triple with seconds remaining in regulation. Jayson Tatum then went to work in overtime, scoring 10 of his game-high 36 points in the extra period to seal a 133-128 win.

Despite the loss, the Pacers should still be thrilled with their offensive performance. Tyrese Haliburton, Pascal Siakam and Myles Turner combined to score 72 points, and Indiana shot 53.5 percent from the field as a team. The biggest key moving forward will be valuing the ball, as the Pacers committed 21 turnovers in Game 1.

Can Indiana claw its way back into the series? Or will Boston take a 2-0 lead?
