The Indiana Pacers head into Game 2 against the Miami Heat playing from behind. But unlike Game 2 in the Orlando series, the Pacers remain on the road where they must band together, trust each other, have some fun and give the Heat everything they have.
With Chris Bosh sidelined, the Heat won't be able to do the same so it is a matter of avoiding an otherworldly game from LeBron James, Dwyane Wade or both. LBJ can definitely create some mismatch problems playing power forward as he is expected to do without Bosh in the rotation. Can Roy Hibbert and David West make the Heat pay inside? Can the Pacers get them the ball? Will the Pacers throw in a little zone to focus on keeping James and Wade out of the paint? Can the Pacers stay out of foul trouble? Will anyone on the blue and gold step up, enjoy the spotlight and make a big impact?
