Wizards host Pacers in play in game

WASHINGTON (AP) — Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards will host the Indiana Pacers tonight in a win-or-go-home game in the NBA’s play-in round. The team that wins will move on to face the No. 1 seed Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The team that loses is done for the season. Westbrook’s record-breaking triple-double ability and Beal’s scoring pushed Washington to a 17-6 run to close the regular season. The Pacers are without Caris LeVert but hope to count on Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon to lead them to a fifth consecutive playoff appearance. Washington swept the teams’ season series 3-0.
