The Pacers lead series 2-1. They've limited Washington to 82 in Game 2, then a franchise-record-low 63 in Game 3.
"That's what we want to be," coach Frank Vogel said, according to AP. "We had great regular-season success by being a dominant defensive team - limiting the 3-ball, keeping teams out of transition, limiting teams to one shot, being a dominant defensive rebounding team - and that's who our identity is."
A key adjustment by Pacers in Game 3 was sending players back on defense instead of emphasizing offensive rebounding. This strategy effectively slowed Washington's quick pace. Pacers is ranked second in defense among the 30 NBA teams.
Wizards won the first game, and Pacers caught up in Game 2, where Indiana's Roy Hibbert shot 10 for 13 and finished with 28 points and nine rebounds in the 86-82 home victory Wednesday.
In Game 1, Hibbert had zero points and zero rebound. And Wizards entered the series after defeating Chicago Bulls and pushed back the Pacers 102-96 with a 1-0 lead in the Playoffs series.
The Pacers won at least 55 games in the season and allowed 96.8 per 100 possessions. While their last seven week's defense performances have left some doubting whether they can defeat the Hawks in the first round, Pacers remain in the Playoffs.
