No Antoine Walker - no cover for Boston. Walker is one of the main reasons the Celtics made such a great late-season push. Without him they will struggle in Indiana. Home favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points after 1+ unders, an average offensive team (92-98 PPG) facing a poor defensive team (98-102 PPG) are 68% ATS (65-31) over the last 5 seasons. This Boston team just doesn't have the heart of old Celtic greats as demonstrated by the fact that they are 0-6 ATS when trailing in a playoff series over the last 3 seasons. Two stars on the Pacers.
