    The Washington Wizards blew an early lead and fell to the Indiana Pacers, 95-92 — giving the Pacers a 3-1 lead in the playoff series.

    The Wizards had led 55-38 at halftime and led by 19 at one point in the third quarter. But the game was down to a one-point margin by the end of the quarter, and the Pacers fought back in the fourth.

    Washington still had a chance to tie the game with a three-point shot in the final two seconds, but an attempted pass to Bradley Beal went wide and the Wizards turned over the ball with just 1.7 seconds left.

    The series now goes back to Indiana for what could be the final game.
