The Indiana Pacers will test just how well they're playing tonight when they host the Miami Heat.

While the Pacers rank as one of the hottest teams in the league, winning six of their last seven games, the Heat are living up to their name heading into tonight's game on a six-game winning streak. Combine that with the fact that the Heat have abused the Pacers in the three previous meetings this year (last two losses by 30 and 34 points) and the Pacers are surely in for a test tonight.

You may find this shocking, but Jermaine O'Neal is a game-time decision after hyperextending his knee and missing the past two games. For the 819th time in his career, O'Neal planned to test the knee out before the game to see if he could play. J.O. has been playing well of late when he, you know, actually plays.
