Former Kentucky Wildcat, John Wall, and the Washington Wizards are set to take on the number one team in the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers.

The Pacers first had to get through the Atlanta Hawks, who gave them all they could handle, taking it to game 7, with the Pacers coming out with the win.

The Wizards manhandled the Chicago Bulls to come out of the series 4-2 to make it to the semi-finals.

The Wizards will have their hands full when taking on the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers, one of the best in the league, seemed to get their game together toward the end of the series with the Hawks. But, let’s not belittle the Wizards. They’re playing the best basketball they’ve played in many years.

The Wizards will be led by former Wildcat, John Wall as they try to reach the finals in the Eastern Conference. Wall is playing some of the best point guard play in the league right now. He is an offensive monster who is surrounded by others who can score, too. Wall, Bradley Beal and Trevor Ariza are constant offensive forces for the Wizards.

There is no telling what is going to happen in the semi-finals between the Pacers and the Wizards, but I can guarantee it’ll be a good series.

Big Blue Nation, Indianapolis is only a few hours away from the good ole state of Kentucky. If you want to see a Kentucky favorite, John Wall, play in the NBA Playoffs, head on up to Indy, the Wizards will need some support.
