Heat vs. Pacers NBA TV Schedule: TNT
The Pacers have earned their split over the course of their first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Heat, and winning a game in South Beach is no easy task. Now, the series shifts back to Indianapolis, just as it did last season with these two teams level at a game apiece. This is where Indiana really has to put its foot on the gas pedal. We know that F LeBron James is going to be the most devastating man on the floor and the toughest to stop, but we also know that no one for Miami has been able to stop C Roy Hibbert yet either. Hibbert scored 29 points and had 10 boards in Game 2, and he was one of the five players that the Pacers put into double digits in scoring. The fear that we have is the James can take a game over all by himself and ultimately turn out to beat another very good team with no help whatsoever. Indiana has to make this a team effort. That being said, the window of opportunity is most certainly open at this point for the Pacers, as they ultimately try to figure out how to get the job done against the supposedly unbeatable Heat. We probably won’t be sticking with Indiana for the rest of this series, but we’re believers for now, and we think that the Heat are in some serious trouble and could fall behind 2-1 on Sunday night.
