After dropping a 19 point lead at home, the Washington Wizards find themselves down 1-3 in the series against the Indiana Pacers and will face a win or go home situation tonight on the road. Although the series has been close, with the Pacers winning by less than double digits in two of their three victories, it’s going to take a near miracle for the Wizards to come back in the series. With all that said, the Wizards are a resilient team and have absolutely nothing to lose, especially since they’ve already exceeded many expectations.
Here’s how you can watch Game 5 tonight.

As previously stated, the Wizards have nothing to lose, so it’ll be interested to see how John Wall and Bradley Beal come out tonight. Washington was not expected to beat the Chicago Bulls in 5 games, and they certainly weren’t expected to take down the number one seeded Pacers. Nene and Marcin Gortat have faltered a bit as of late, and now that they’re facing what could be the last game of the season, Washington will need them to step up, especially since David West and Roy Hibbert have been playing much better as of late.
Can Washington overcome this huge obstacle and make it a competitive series once again? Game 5 will be the determining factor. It’s win or go home.
