Russell Westbrook, Wizards battle Pacers for play-in positioning

Eastern Conference opponents jockeying for playoff positioning meet Saturday in Indianapolis when the Indiana Pacers host the Washington Wizards.

Indiana (31-35) remained in ninth place in the East after a 133-126 defeat of Atlanta on Thursday, but Washington (31-36) kept pace with its 131-129 overtime win against Toronto.

The Pacers hold a half-game lead over the Wizards ahead of Saturday's matchup. Both gained ground on eighth-place Charlotte, which lost Thursday to Chicago.
