Pacers #1 Seed
I think they're fate is sealed with that #1 seed. If they have to play the Nets in the 2nd round I believe they will lose that series. The Nets and Heat are the two most talented teams in the East. What made the Pacers special was that they played for each other and as a team as a collective group Defensively they're so potent that their average (yes it's only average) offense is enough to put them over the edge. It's scary how far they've fallen so fast. Hopefully we get another Heat - Pacers ECF but as the days go by I think a Nets - Heat ECF will be far more exciting and intense.
