The Indiana Pacers take on the Miami Heat tonight on South Beach looking to lift their level of play and begin playing like a playoff team once again.

The Pacers were punked by 35 points in their last trip to Miami so just improving on that result shouldn't be too tough. Instead the Pacers need to focus on their game plan and exhibit some toughness on defense and on the glass at both ends of the floor.

Of course, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade can rebuff even the best effort by the Pacers but Indiana has to show some fight for 48 minutes regardless of how well the stars play for the Heat. Miami is fully healthy while the Pacers will be without Jeff Foster (back) and George Hill (shoulder).

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For a Miami perspective, check out Peninsula is Mightier. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
