The Washington Wizards have been one of the best road teams in the Eastern Conference all year long and their success away from home surprisingly continued in the NBA Playoffs. With that said, the Wizards stole Game 1 on the road against the Indiana Pacers and they’ll have a legitimate chance to take a 2-0 series lead tonight. Here’s how you can catch the game.
Date: Wednesday, May 7th
Start Time: 7:00pm ET
Venue: Bankers Life Fieldhouse
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Series Lead: Wizards won game 1, lead series 1-0
Game 2 Preview: Here
TV Channel: TNT
Live Stream: TNT Overtime
Indiana’s struggles have been well documented post All-Star break, but in order to win the series against the Wizards, they’re going to have to take care of home court, which they haven’t been doing as of late. The Atlanta Hawks won multiple games away from home in the first round against Indiana and Washington thoroughly dominated the Pacers on Monday in Game 1.
Roy Hibbert and Paul George are really going to have to step up in terms of productivity, while John Wall and Bradley Beal have started to emerge on one of the league’s biggest stages. Basically, if the Wizards take Game 2 on the road tonight, they’ll have a very good chance at moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals–something none of us envisioned prior to the postseason. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss it.
