TJ Warren entered the bubble with enough “fire-power” to hold the Indiana Pacers in the top five teams of the Eastern Conference.

Indiana cruised past the Washington Wizards (111-100), with Warren scoring 34 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. The North Carolina alumni shot 53% from the field to help his team improve to 2-0 since the restart of the NBA season.

Indiana pulled within a game of Miami for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, while TJ Warren completed a two-game span scoring 87 points. That’s the second-most in the history of the franchise in a two-game span.

The Pacers are going to face the Orlando Magic on Wednesday in their third game inside the Orlando “bubble”.
