The Indiana Pacers are kickin' it old school today with a real, live practice session as they try to cleanse their palate of three consecutive losses while preparing for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.
They should be plenty motivated to get to work after seeing the Heat dismantle the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday evening simply to avoid embarrassment. Not sure there is much any team in the league can do when the Heat have it going like they did last night.
The Pacers will catch a little scheduling break for Miami's visit to the Fieldhouse. While the game will be the first of three games in three nights for the Pacers, it will be the third in a row for the Heat. Not only that but Miami's back-to-back-to-back gauntlet will be run on the road with no home games among the trio.
Of course, the Hawks did neither Milwaukee (Miami's opponent tonight) nor the Pacers any favors since the early blowout allowed Miami's firepower to minimize the minutes needed to secure the W.
