We had a bad beat last night with the Celtics, but at least it was a push instead of a loss. The Celtics led almost the entire game with a lead of nine at the half and 14 after three quarters, but the Pacers rallied to lose by three. 

It's a rare six-game slate on a Wednesday night. Two games have double-digit spreads, while the other four are five points or fewer. Only two games have a total higher than 218.5. There's still a lot of injury news that isn't clear at the time of this writing, so I only have one play for now.
