Pacers @ Heat [Game 1]

Who do you guys have in this series?

I think the Heat win this in 6 games and if Dwyane Wade can play to his normal level, maybe even 5.

While the Heat are favorites,

While the Heat are favorites, Indiana is absolutely no slouch.

As easily as I could see Miami winning this series, if West and Hibbert dominate and Wade continues to struggle, we could see the Pacers in the Finals.

Bosh and West is the key-matchup in this one

Wow

It will always be Miami as long as NBA is lead by Stern. NBA already lost a fan favorite in OKC. Would anybody watch a Spurs/Memp vs Indy? No viewers would mean no money for the NBA. And you thought the lottery was rigged!

Heat are good, but they're at best when the NBA backs them

Big Market

When did Miami become a big market? I believe they are middle of the pack, 14th or something. If they didn't have Big 3 they would be way down the list. Miami doesn't need help from Stern, they have a guy named LeBron who is pretty good at basketball. Why are you watching if you think it is WWE fake? I hate conspiracy theorists.

If this were in fact true,

If this were in fact true, San Antonio would have never won any titles, especially with the Los Angeles Lakers in their conference.

The refs got every one of those calls correct. I know the annual heat get the calls talk is bound to happen like it always does on here, but can we at least wait until we actually see them get the benefit of some bad calls before we get that ball rolling so soon.

And one of my biggest pet

And one of my biggest pet peeves of NBA officiating right there with Cole jumping on augustin when augustin lost the ball for a second and went to the floor. As soon as there is a loose ball on the floor, players are allowed to go all Miguel vs fans at the billboards and no foul is called.

Miami came out hard to start

Miami came out hard to start this half. Punched the Pacers right in the mouth. Vogel needs to rally his troops and calm them down a bit.

Somehow the Pacers still hold

Somehow the Pacers still hold the lead. This team has grit and heart. I give them all the credit in the world for holding their own here. 4th quarter should be pretty testyyyy.

I am sure i am the biggest

I am sure i am the biggest Paul George fan on this site and I gotta say that this excuse isn't good enough anymore. If he wants to be taken seriously as a "Star" he needs to play better offensively.

James, Durant, Bryant all usually guard the opposing teams best scorer and they still produce.

I'm not trying to make excuses, dude. He does need to play better. I just don't get why half of his shots have been with the shot-clock under 5 seconds. The Heat can play some good D, I reckon.

I wanna know why Frank Vogel

I wanna know why Frank Vogel was fined when he said that the Heat are the best flopping team in the league. Why would he get fined for speaking the truth?

They are the best flopping

They are the best flopping team because they have the guys with the high basketball IQs combined with incredible speed. Flopping is just something they do better than others because they are often one step ahead of the offense, mentally and physically. It should be stopped, but it is hard to stop it when the guys doing it are really really good.

Hibbert fouls LeBron on the alley-oop attempt.

Hibbert pushes Chris Bosh on that lefty hook.

No calls.

And Allen could have had a 4

And Allen could have had a 4 point play earlier. I think the heat gve gotten a slight edge in calls, but nothing to say the refs changed the outcome. And as I type this, Paul George just came up tiny missing a 15 footer then throwing the ball out of bounds instead of coming to a jump stop and shooting the little 8 footer in the paint.
