The Indian Pacers are not going to have fun watching film of the final minute of their loss the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series on Wednesday night.

Because man did they do a lot of things wrong. And now they head home down 0-2 in the series.

The Pacers actually had a 10-point lead in the second half. But Kyrie Irving and the Celtics were able to fight their way back at home and trailed Indiana by two points with just under a minute left.

Then Boston ended up winning by eight, 99-91. Seriously.

It all started with this unfortunate turn of events:

Then with 20 seconds left in a 1-point game the Pacers allowed Gordon Hayward to get wide open for a layup:

And it only got worse from there.

Because look what happened on their next possession after a time out:

Yeah, that's not an ideal in-bounds pass.

But then they doubled down on their awful play by letting Jayson Tatum get free for this dunk to make it a 5-point game:

And then they closed things out with another ugly turnover:

So to wrap that up - the Pacers got outscored 10-0 in that final, committed two ugly turnovers, and lost the game.

Not good.
