Pacers vs. Heat Links: Easy to find lost opportunities for Pacers in Game 2

Yet another off-day prior to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals in Miami which is actually a good thing as the Pacers prepare for their road attack while giving Paul George more time to be cleared to play.

While the Pacers remain mum on the status of Paul George for Game 3, the rest of us have to labor through another off day. The extra time benefits the Pacers and PG since clearing the concussion protocol takes a couple of days. The Pacers can wait until the last second to reveal PG's status for Saturday night but at this point, the only surprise will be if he doesn't play.

Speaking of play, on an actual court and everything, Coach Nick at offers a nice look at where the Pacers came up short in Game 2. In a lot of ways, it should give Pacers fans hope since you can see all of the good looks gone awry, including several quality scoring opportunities in the second half that were missed.

Couple that with the PG blow to the head and David West getting poked in the eye and it certainly wasn't the Pacers' night. So while I say the following video should give some hope, I didn't say it wasn't maddeningly frustrating to watch.
