The Indiana Pacers gave up their home court advantage to the Orlando Magic after splitting the first two games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. So now, in order to take control of the series the Pacers will have to win on Orlando's home floor.

The two teams are back at it tonight at 7:30 p.m. for a critical Game 3. The Pacers are saying all of the right things leading up to tip off tonight, so now they have to put those words into action. That means continuing to do what they've been doing on the defensive end of the floor and then tightening up their execution on the offensive end. Oh, and it wouldn't hurt to knock down a few more threes. As a team, the Pacers made 37% of their threes during the regular season which was the sixth best percentage across the league. In the first two games, they've only made 18% of their threes, including a rim-rattling two for 20 in Game 2.

This isn't rocket science. Check out the links after the jump including this video with George Hill following Game 2. Don't worry, no one was injured in the Pterodactyl attack in the locker room heard near the end.
