INDIANAPOLIS -- Marcin Gortat delivered the best playoff game of his career, 31 points and 16 rebounds, and John Wall scored a playoff - best 27 points as Washington routed the Indiana Pacers 102 - 79 to cut its Eastern Conference semifinals deficit to 3 - 2.

The Wizards made a stunning turnaround after losing three straight, two on their home court in incredibly demoralizing fashion. Washington scored a franchise - low 63 points in Game 3 and then blew a 19 - point, second - half lead in Game 4.

Washington refused to let it happen again this time, earning a trip home for Game 6 on Thursday.
