The Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat just doesn't have the same buzz it did at this time last year. Obviously, both teams are without their best player from last season with Paul George injured for the Pacers and LeBron James doing...something in Cleveland.
The Pacers are playing better of late, at least as a team, but their starting unit has yet to find its stride as injured players have returned to the court. The Heat have similar problems, arriving at the Fieldhouse after losing six of their last nine games. Miami was 3-5 during an eight-game stretch without Chris Bosh (calf injury) but the Heat big man returned to the lineup in their last game which puts Miami in good shape to face the Pacers.
