The best news for the Heat is that they were able to get a few extra days of rest and ultimately end up starting this series on Wednesday instead of on Monday. That gives G Dwyane Wade some time to get his knee back on some ice and back into game shape. That’s bad news for the Pacers, who we think are vastly overrated here in Game 1 of this series. This should be a double digit spread, and we think that everyone knows it outside of Las Vegas. The Heat have only played in three games in this postseason that haven’t been decided by at least 10 points. They have been waiting for this series all season long, knowing that they lost two of the three games to the Pacers in the regular season, especially after losing two games in the second round last year in the playoffs. Remember that this Indiana team has taken some major steps in the right direction, but not offensively. The Pacers are going to have to keep the Heat into the 90s if they want to cover this game in all likelihood, and that’s a heck of a lot easier said than done, especially when you don’t have all that many threats to be able to get the job done from the outside yourself. This is a game for Los Heat to dominate in Game 1.
