The Indiana Pacers host the Miami Heat tonight with the Heat securely in the playoffs but scrambling to make up 3.5 games on Atlanta for home court advantage in the first round. Of course, Atlanta has never had a daunting home court advantage and so as the Heat's current first round opponent, maybe they should focus on being healthy and ready to go for the playoffs.

Speaking of which, Jermaine O'Neal returns to the Fieldhouse for the second time this year with a second team. J.O. sat out Monday's game against Memphis but has proclaimed himself good to go for tonight.

Here are the Matchups. Kind of seems strange seeing T.J. Ford as the sixth man.
