The Celtics lose home-court advantage

The Celtics gave the Pacers a gift. Game 2 in the first round of the playoffs had to be won but the Celtics gave the game away. Now the Celtics have lost home-court their advantage.

Now the pressure is all on the Celtics to steal a road game from the Pacers. Getting a win at Indiana is possible but if Boston keeps defending poorly then they won't go far and this series might go all the way to game 7. Surely that might make things more exciting, but now the C's have a slimmer chance of getting to the next round.

The C's shot poorly from the field, especially Ricky Davis who was 1 for 8 and Raef LaFrentz was 0-4. On the other hand, Reggie Miller led the Pacers with 28 points making 9-18 attempts.
