Last night at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis

KEY NUMBER

11 Assists for the Wizards, fewest by a Pacers’ opponent this season.

KEY TO THE GAME

With more than twice as many offensive rebounds as the Pacers (17-8), the Wizards scored just two more second-chance points (16-14) than Indiana.

SEEN AND HEARD

JAMISON UPDATE: Antawn Jamison didn’t start again, not because he is injured but because the team wants to get the most out of him during the five-game homestand beginning tonight against Philadelphia.

“There is a plan in place to play Antawn every other day during that home stretch. It’s not a coaching decision, it is an agreement,” coach Eddie Jordan said. “The plan is to get him to as high a level as we can when we make the playoffs.”

Playoffs? Did the coach say the “P” word?

“We’re very confident that if we play the way we can, we will make the playoffs,” Jordan said of the Wizards (41-34), who have seven games remaining. Five are at home, where the Wizards are 25-11.
