The Indiana Pacers host the hottest road show in the NBA when the Miami Heat make their only appearance of the season at Conseco Fieldhouse. Make that the regular season. If things continue trending as they have of late, the Heat may be back in town in April for a first round playoff matchup with the Pacers.

Wouldn't that be fun?

But enough looking ahead, the Pacers will obviously have their hands full tonight with a Heat team that is trying to establish their dominance over the Pacers, knowing the two may meet with more on the line in a couple of months. The Pacers have given the Heat fits in the first two games, with Dwyane Wade not offering LeBron James much in the way of help. That remains the key tonight, trying to keep D-Wade from being the X-factor that creates a rough night for the home team.

The game tonight will be seen nationally on NBA TV thanks to the fan vote last week making the selection.

Here is the preview.
