INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards return to Bankers Life Fieldhouse Tuesday night for Game 5 in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Pacers lead the series 3-1.

A win for the Pacers would send them to the Eastern Conference finals, where they would take on either the Miami Heat or Brooklyn Nets.

Just like the Pacers, Miami has to win one more game to make it to the Eastern Conference finals.

They took game 4 Monday night 102-96, bringing them 3-1 in the series with the Brooklyn Nets.

LeBron James scored 49 points. He could’ve reached the 50-point milestone, but he missed a foul shot with one second remaining.

After the game, he said he was disappointed.

“That’s the first time I’ve been disappointed in myself in a win,” James said. “It definitely won’t take away from the fact that it was a huge game for us, being able to win this ballgame. But it’s a free throw, and I hate missing free throws.”

In that series, Game 5 is Wednesday in Miami.

In the Pacers vs Wizards series, Game 5 tips off at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
