On Friday, Indiana outlasted Washington 85-63. They held the Wizards to 32.9 percent shooting, including 25 percent from three-point range. A DC crowd witnessing its first conference semifinal series since 2005 started booing in the second quarter and didn’t stop until they began filing towards the exits midway through the fourth.

“I think our success has always been ugly,” said George Hill. “The last three years I have been here, no one wanted to watch us. We didn’t have that glow or that flair where high caliber people tune into watch us. I think that’s why we had that chip on our shoulder. No one expected us to be where we’re at. It’s good that no one wants to watch us.
