Pacers @ Heat

No Bosh at all tonight, does that impact the Heat? They were fine without him for the time he was out last game, but that wasn't for the entire game. I'd love to see the Pacers grab an away game win to make things interesting, Hibbert has an opportunity to focus up without the concerns of defending and elite scorer in the post ( Unless Lebron goes big).

"does that impact the Heat?"

yes, a ton. not only do we loose his production, we loose his length and ability to stretch the floor, which are essential for the heat.

Chalmers, Haslem, Turiaf, Battier, and Miller (in that order) have to step up huge to make up for Bosh.

These playoff games just look

These playoff games just look to big for Paul George at this point. His shot looks so forced, Hibbert and Hill/Collison need to be big today.

Heat

Are struggling to develop any offense. And btw you might as well say you hate home games. Because the Lakers, Clippers, Thunder, and Celtics all get away with the same things.

Indiana lacks that true go to guy but they trust each other which is why they got a shot at beating the Cheat

Depth

If the Knicks had their depth that series would have been way better, this is a prime example of how slowing the Cheat down is their achilles heel

Anybody still think this series is going 5 lol?

Pacers held Heat to less than 35% shooting. Clap, clap, clap, clap...

I like having David West on this team. "This is only one game."

Great, grind it out game. Pacers were going to steal one at AA arena. I had this as a 6 game series prior to the Bosh injury but I think it'll take a game 7 judging by tonight

I underestimated

Just how important bosh really was. Wow, Miami had to play intense defense because they were missing Bosh's offense. That is crazy.

Lolol

Be honest here Indianna, I realize you are happy. But lets not get crazy, nobody is taking anything from the Pacers, they are still impressive. Hell if it weren't for freethrows and some bs calls, Pacers would of pulled away long ago. But lets not be blind and not see clearly what Heat's offense is missing.

"Hibbert will be able to live

"Hibbert will be able to live in the post more, we know this. But there is not one player on the Pacers that measure up to either Wade, nor Lebron. There is no excuse for LeBron should he fail. Its still likely that he won't fail. Chris Bosh is out for the series, not out for the playoffs (I'm assuming). This means now Lebron and Wade are going on full blast. Even though Bosh's third option points will be missed, its the playoffs. And the playoffs are all about surprise performances. And unfortunately for the Pacers, no team does it better on both sides of the court." - KayJay

Let's not backtrack now KayJay.

When LeBron was at the line,

When LeBron was at the line, who did NOT expect him to miss at least one of those free-throws? I mean, hasn't this been LeBron most of his career?

However, for Wade to keep getting a pass is sad. He's honestly not played well two games in a row. LeBron is doing all of the heavy lifting whenever you get done with it. Wade missed a wide open layup today.

Wade living off of a clutch reputation from years ago.

Didn't watch the game, and haven't read any comments yet but I'm going to make the safe assumption that everyone blames LeBron for the loss.

To be honest, I don't care if

To be honest, I don't care if Lebron chokes away game 2, I care if he chokes away the series. He'll bounce back, Wade didn't do well either, that was a nice move either however he botched the shot.

I expect Miami to win in 6, but here's the one thing that seems like might happen, Lebron continues with his all-around dominanace but Wade dissapoints. I wonder what would happen if we see historic efforts from Lebrona dn Heat still lose, I wonder how the media would interpret that one. Big win for the Pacers, go home and try to get a couple huge wins in front of your home crowd.

I don't care about what

I don't care about what LeBron or Wade didn't do...

I care about what the Pacers did do and they held the Heat to under 35% shooting and hurt them on the boards. There were at least two or three clutch possessions where the Pacers got the offensive rebounds.

The Pacers crowd will be rocking at home. IF the Pacers continue to defend, rebound and start making free-throws like they normally do, this is going to be a long series.

Lebron

Should have made those freethrows, but lets be honest by that point he'd already played 42 minutes while playing incredible defense (6 steals) just to keep the pacers from running the heat out of the game...The truth is Lebron was really the only reason it was close. This is just another example of the fact that for the Heat to win any series Lebron has to put forth a superhuman effort every game, which is close to physically impossible.I don't care what anyone says , if you finish the game with 28 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 steals you did more than did your part. If this seems like I'm making irrational excuses for Lebron its only because every Lebron "not being clutch" statement is completely inaccurate and distorts other people's perception of him on every level. Especially the ones who are just bandwagoners who don't really watch and or understand basketball. The rest of the Heat need to step up, Lebron can't play 43 minutes and have 35 plus everygame.
