    Pacers vs. Wizards

    Roy Hibbert scored a season high 28 points and the Pacers evened the series at one game apiece beating Washington 86-82. Even with the big game from Hibbert, the Wizards had a chance to win late.

    With 5:02 left to play, Washington leading 77-74, the Wizards were 66 percent likely to win. Indiana responded with an 8-2 run that increased the Pacers' expected win probability from 34 percent to 77 percent.

    A defining play occurred on the ensuing Washington possession. Down three with 2:25 left in the game, Marcin Gortat got an offensive rebound. John Wall then launched a deep three instead of running a play. The Wizards never recovered. Had Wall setup a play and Washington scored to make it a one point game, the Wizards expected win probability increases from 23 percent to 38 percent. Had Wall's long three been good to tie the game, Washington's expected win probability increases to 46 percent.

    Thunder vs. Clippers

    Oklahoma City evened their series at one game apiece with a 112-101 victory. MVP Kevin Durant had 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists as the Thunder, who did trail at different points in the first half, were always the projected winner.

    OKC became 99 percent likely to win with 8:28 left in the fourth.
