The Indiana Pacers take another shot at the champs when they host the Miami Heat on Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers chilled the Heat a few weeks ago with a strong defensive effort and that held Miami to 77 points. Part of of that winning formula was owning the glass all night and at both ends with a 22-7 offensive rebounding edge for the game. This allowed the Pacers to give up 52 points to Dwyane Wade and LeBron James and make it feel like they were holding 'em down.

Prior to the last game, LeBron expressed his readiness to play after taking issue with some of the (at least in his mind) talking the Pacers had done in the offseason. The Pacers didn't need to talk after beating the Heat in early January and I have a feeling LeBron won't say much this time around with the intent to let his play do the screaming.
