Wizards pullback

Thursday, May 15, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana - The Washington Wizards carried a 39-rebound advantage to a 102-79 rout of Indiana yesterday, cutting the Pacers' lead in the NBA Eastern Conference semi-finals to 3-2.

Washington can level the series at home tomorrow in game six in a stunning turnaround for a team that had lost the last three.

Washington held a 62-23 rebounding edge, with Marcin Gortat matching a career high in points scored (31) and posting a new playoff record number of 16 rebounds, and John Wall adding 27 points. David West scored 17 points for Indiana.

Washington used a 15-6 run to take a 45-38 half-time lead, extended the margin to 24 after three and to as much as 30 in the fourth.

Washington denied the top-seeded Pacers a spot in the conference finals and improved to 4-2 on the road in this year's playoffs. They are just 1-3 at home.

Indiana couldn't get enough stops because of their rebounding problems, and it didn't take long to see it play out.
