The question is: Does going home sound more appealing than playing for pride and avoiding a sweep at the hands of the Heat?
This seemed like a fair question in the first half of Game 3, but the Pacers showed some guts in rallying back to fight for the win in the second half. Now in Game 4, looking ahead will do no good. Have to focus on winning this one game, actually winning each quarter.
Won’t be easy, but only the Pacers can make it happen since the Heat are playing to close out the series and get a little extra rest.
