Happy Carb Day! Those heading out to IMS today should have plenty of time to continue the party this evening while finding a spot to watch the Pacers and Heat square off in Game 2.
The Pacers fell one play short in Game 1 with "The Layup" delivering a stunning loss. Time to officially move on today and put the pedal to the metal for another 48 minute battle. Consider in Game 1, the Pacers biggest lead was seven points while the Heat's largest advantage was five points. The game was tight and intense throughout, a serious pleasure to watch, final result notwithstanding.
What makes the NBA playoffs so difficult is trying to maintain that physical and mental intensity throughout a series. That will be the challenge for the Pacers tonight, especially for their younger players soaking in the spotlight of the Eastern Conference Finals. They have to step up to a higher level of play than they showed on Wednesday since LeBron and friends will be ready.
