After surviving their first do-or-die challenge in Game 5, the Pacers are on the road in Miami to give the Heat their best shot in an effort to send the ECF back to Indy for Game 7.

No doubt the Pacers will have to play better than they did in Game 5, well some Pacers. Hard to imagine Paul George improving on his Game 5 exploits, but in general, relying on a sensational second half after a horrid first half won't fly. LeBron James won't be getting whistled for any touch fouls on his home floor.

Plus, LBJ may have a little pent up game to unleash on the Pacers after his frustrating evening in the Circle City on Wednesday. I remain convinced the pressure is now on Miami to close up shop at home which should allow the Pacers to surprise all and push the series back to Indy. This series deserves a Game 7 although I'd have zero confidence in the Pacers winning that game.That's just how the season has gone, right?

All that matters now is Game 6, though. Chris Andersen remains a game-time decision. Recent comments seem to indicate he's close to a go after missing the last two games, but he did not take part in the team's shootaround (per Brian Windhorst). In Birdman's absence, the Heat have been content and successful going with small lineups, so working Andersen back into the rotation would give Erik Spoelstra some decisions to make.
