The closer we get to the game, the less I like Indiana's chances. Bad road team, West has apparently come down w/ some sort of fever, make a lot of stupid unforced mistakes every game, young guys that haven't been this far and have to handle a different type of pressure, Heat haven't lost two consecutive games in forever, etc. I'd bring up what the league wants in this scenario but that's been covered plenty.
This isn't the same frontrunning Miami team from 2011 though. I don't expect them go through their usual bored stretch during the game. They know they have to play with a sense of urgency since they know what's at stake so that switch has to be flipped from the jump. Birdman returning, and the "emotional lift" that comes w/ it, is huge. Pacers just have to keep true to what got them here and weather the inevitable storm.

Out there shooting threes when they need him to grab rebounds. Doesn't matter though. The league office WILL NOT let Indiana play the Spurs in the finals. They have to put themselves there. This ain't basketball, it's a business. It's like boxing. The only way Indiana advances, is if they whoop Miami *** because the refs and the league aren't gonna give them anything. Good luck to the Pacers. I respect how they play basketball, and how they put their team together
The randomness and placement of this comment had me .
