    Default Imagine how sweet it would be

    If the Pacers could win out and pass Miami for the second seed.

    Isn't happening, and they would put on the effort for a game or two before risking playing Chicago in the second round, but the Pacers are 4.5 games behind, and have a schedule that frankly they are capable of going 6-2 or 7-1, leaving a final record of 42-24 or 43-23. (granted the pacers sometimes lay eggs against weak teams, but we should be heavily favored in all of our upcoming games minus chicago, who are likely to be resting starters having clinched the 1st seed.)

    Miami currently sits at 40-17 with games remaining vs. Boston, New York, Chicago, and Houston, teams fighting for much harder than Miami frankly is right now. Unforunately, the Chicago and Houston games are in Miami, but I could see them losing in New York and Boston, and likely 1 more game for a final record of 46-20, possibly only 3 or so games ahead of the Pacers.

    Puts how successful we've been/ have the potential to be this season in perspective, and hey, if the heat keep playing like disinterested lazy bums then who knows

    Going by those records they would actually be 3 or 4 games above us, not 1.5 or 2

    It goes to show how much tunnel vision the media directs towards the Miami's, Knicks, Celtics,Bulls, OKC , Spurs and L.A's. The fact that Indiana will finish with 40+ wins and have only been on national television once that I can recall and get no recognition at all. Literally none. It's pretty damn pathetic. Memphis and Indiana should be talked about.

    They only talk about teams like ours when we have a player that they want to hype as potentially going to LA or NY. Media manipulation at its best. Great job Chris Brousard and your phantom sources.

    Corrected, it's late . Point still stands, most people wouldn't have believed we would have even a statistical chance to catch Miami this late in the season before it went and started. We should be proud of the team.

    I don't think that Miami is losing on purpose by any means, but I would guess that they are perfectly content with the 2 seed.

    Bulls - Knicks, Celtics
    Heat - Sixers, Pacers

    I would much rather have the Heat's road to the Conference finals than the Bulls.

    That's if the Pacers/Celtics beat the Hawks/Magic.

    Neither are gimmes.

    Especially the way Miami has struggled since the All Star break.

    13-10. Pacers are 15-10, including that horrific 2-6 stretch.

    Agreed, they aren't going to catch Miami. However, they have played at a high level since day one, something that shouldn't be overlooked. Yes, there have been some downs, but the ups have outweighed them (To the tune of being 13 games over .500 )

    Go PACERS!
