INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Somehow, the Pacers have gotten themselves back on track.
Roy Hibbert is playing with confidence. Paul George is producing double-doubles. And the defense is contesting shots.
The dramatic turnaround has put Indiana within one win of a second straight trip to the Eastern Conference finals. They'll get their first chance when the Wizards visit Tuesday night.
Washington has played its best playoff games on the road, though. The Wizards won three times in Chicago and took Game 1 in the best-of-seven conference semis last week at Indiana.
But they haven't won a game since. Indiana won Game 2 on Wednesday then swept the Wizards on their home court Friday and Sunday, looking more like the strong team that started the season than the one that stumbled in the second half.
