Ep. 94: Game 1 breakdown with Jared Weiss

Every fan received a green T-shirt at Game 1 of Pacers-Celtics.

BOSTON — The Pacers dropped Game 1 in Boston, 84-74. The third quarter, in which they missed 17 of 19 shots and scored only eight points, was their worst single quarter in franchise playoff history. They managed just 29 points in the second half – a total of 24 minutes. Not good.

So that’s what a I wrote about after Game 1.

Jared Weiss covers the Celtics for The Athletic in Boston. He joined me to discuss Game 1 and to look ahead to the rest of the series.
