The Pacers will be continue playing without guard C.J. Watson, while the Heat will reportedly miss corner three-baller, Ray Allen now doubtful with the flu. The only remaining question is Dwyane Wade who remains a game-time decision with all signs pointing toward him giving it a go.
There won't be many surprises between the two teams, although seeing how Greg Oden plays and more importantly, how Roy Hibbert attacks Oden will be a key subplot. But as usual, it comes down to LeBron James and what type of impact he has on the game, how the game is officiated and whether or not the Pacers can knock down their open shots.
