O'Neal probable for Game 3

INDIANAPOLIS -- Pacers forward Jermaine O'Neal missed
practice Thursday with a sinus infection and was probable for
Game 3 of Indiana's playoff series with Boston.

O'Neal is the team's leading scorer and rebounder. He has
averaged 23 points and 11 rebounds in the playoff series, which the
Pacers lead 2-0.

"We have to do what we can to get healthy by tomorrow," Pacers
coach Rick Carlisle said. "If we don't have Jermaine, we're going
to have to have other guys step up."
