    Rundown:

    49% of Indiana thinks we can win it all.

    Tennessee voted for Miami.

    Texas voted for Miami.

    In every state besides Indiana, Indiana was voted on by <10% of the state's population.

    I don't understand why the lot of you are trying to be so damn objective. "Pacers match up well and have a great blah blah.....that said I feel pretty comfortable in saying Heat in 6"

    I'm a Pacer fan and my team is 2-1 vs the Heat this year. Pacers gonna win this series. Thats all there is too it.
    Did Ray Allen even score against us this year? Half the players on the Heat bench wont' even see minutes this series.
    All you worried about Bosh. Bosh gonna be in foul trouble this whole series, just like he was in the 1st 2 games.
    Lance is gonna break Wade's ankles at some point in this series.
    Though I don't share your enthusiasm...

    We've all gotten this far right?

    Eff it. Pacers in 6 baby!

    We're certainly a huge underdog. The most recent odds I saw were:

    Heat -730
    Pacers +515

    Which, for the non-bettors, means that in order to win $100 on the Heat, you would have to wager $730. Whereas a $100 bet on the Pacers would net you $515. Pretty staggering. I don't know where that would rank among the largest difference in odds in Conference Finals history but I'd have to imagine it would be on the short list.
    Pacers have been bet down pretty significantly since Saturday. It opened up with the Pacers at +650 at my book.

    David West limited by strained calf on Monday

    David West was limited by a strained right calf during Monday's practice, but he doesn't expect it to hamper him during Game 1 on Wednesday.
    When asked if the injury would be an issue, West replied, "Nah."

    Is anyone concerned about Lance's matchup with wade? I know Lance has really improved his defense, tremendously. I mean I think we are all impressed with his D. But I am afraid of Wade using his veteran maneuvers to get Lance in foul trouble, and not only foul trouble but And 1's.

    I forgot I'm on a Miami Dolphins forums that has an outside spot for basketball and some of these replies make me smile lol

    just for fun here ya go...

    The Knicks would have been a much more entertaining series, from a pure basketball enjoyment perspective. The Indy/Bulls style is just not appealing even if it is relatively effective for them. Memphis is the same way.

    Watching these teams, you start to understand why people hated those 90's Riley teams.
    Coaching and veteran leadership of SA makes them the toughest matchup remaining. They play D and can score...Indiana won't average 90 ppg this series.
    You definitely have that twisted. Why did the Heat go 1-3 vs the Knicks? Because the Knicks spread the floor and knocked down a bunch of 3's. The spurs will do the same with a better PG and a better big man. They are your biggest threat left. Memphis is Indiana with some scoring options. You will wreck indiana because they cannot score and Miami can. Much as I hate the Heat you have 3 guys who can legitimately carry an offense on any given night. If youre playing from in front of Indy, watch how hard they struggle to score.
    Heat in 5. Indy can't score, and they get their one win from the reliable home court officiating.
    I do take solace in the fact we are a better team than last season and they are worse.
    I can't stand Indiana, I can't stand the breaks they are allowed,I can't stand Roy Hibbert's flopping ***. A 7'2 guy falling on the floor 6-7 times a game?? Just stop it.

    Only way this series is close to competitive is if The Indiana home officials start calling fouls on Lebron at will.

    Agree, Heat in 5.
    re-sell market tanking.

    On Friday..Game 1..average ticket...$550...Lower bowl....$325

    Now? Average ticket $431..Lower Bowl $244..
    (This I found ******, but it's sadly true, God I hope we win now so much more)

    Heat in 4 (or maybe 5 if they decide to give them a gentlemans sweep)...The beat the heat chants are funny. They couldnt beat ya'll with Granger last year and now theyre going to win without him? Thats cute.
    While Im doubtful the Knicks would have beat Miami I think the Knicks would have been more likely to get it to a 6th game at least then Indy will.
    Man that was a frustrated game to watch last night. Knicks seemed to be getting screwed big time by the refs that game. the FT discrepancy was ridiculous. That being said, they were in it til the end.

    Don't worry Knicks fans, the Heat will spank the Pacers for you in 5.

    My Favorite
    Can someone explain to me how its an offensive foul when the offensive player gets pulled to the floor by the defensive player who has a hand full of the offensive players jersey? Cause thats what Paul George just did to Melo. I mean he hasnt been able to stop him any other way but thats just a beotch

    See how stupid those fans sound complaining about the officials. That is one reason why I hate when Pacers fans complain about the refs - does not come across well at all, no matter the merit.

    ESPN, or whoever, really got that "Indy's offense sucks" narrative out there. We were a top 10 offense post All Star break.

    Pacers in 6. Or Heat in 7. Just like I predicted vs NY. I love these idiot analysts who say Miami in 4, 5 and 6. First off,
    Miami isn't sweeping, not winning in 5 and definitely not closing out at BLF. If Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith predicted the Knicks Pacers series right, the series would've been over in 4.

    I believe.

    Pacers in 6
    Or
    Heat in 7
    Here we come lottery?

    I hardly ever post, but felt like sharing this.

    Last night a guy at work (Knick fan) bet me that Miami would sweep. It's a pretty hefty price of a pint of booze, but nevertheless a bet. I don't pretend to know a great deal about basketball, but if there's one thing I know it's that we won't get swept. With any luck, I'll be enjoying the booze for the Friday night game!

    I posted before the New York series that New York would not have answer for Lance. When Lance plays well it brings our play to another level. I feel the same way with this series. The Lance /Wade matchup is going to be one that I will be paying close attention to. With Lance's size and strength, he has the ability to wear you down defensively. If Lance can get a couple early fouls on Wade going to the rim that should force Miami to double Lance leaving a passing lane open. I really hate to put so much burden on Lance this series but he really is the X factor in our success.

    Lance is the perfect matchup for Wade. Hopefully he can shut down D-Wade this series

    Yep, dude just needs to stay disciplined and not bite on his shot fakes. He should be able to handle him on defense and make him work (hopefully) on offense.

    PG and Young can guard Lebron while Lance takes care of Wade. Roy "recycles," quote from Mark Boyle, everything at the rim

    Maybe, but maybe it shouldn't be. Here's why...

    We were up 2-1 last year. Could have been up 3-1. We lost Granger, but many would argue we are better this year. Many would argue that Miami is better, but are they? OK, Bosh is healthy, but they have Allen who is a defensive liability and has been held in check by us. Birdman? Sorry, not convinced.

    I think anyone beating the Heat would be considered a huge upset, but in my opinion, winning would not come close to something like Douglas vs. Tyson or USA vs. Russia in Lake Placid.
