Hot teams Celtics, Pacers face each other

(TSX / STATS) -- INDIANAPOLIS -- The Boston Celtics (17-3), who have won 17 of 18 including a 118-103 victory on Friday night against Orlando, travel to Indiana on Saturday.

They will face the red-hot Indiana Pacers (11-8), who have won five in a row, including Friday night's 107-104 victory against Toronto.

While Boston got 30 points in only 25 minutes from All-Star guard Kyrie Irving against the Magic, it is Irving's desire to win games instead of posting huge numbers that has been at the core of the Celtics' terrific start to a season in which they lost Gordon Heyward to an opening-night knee injury.
