Perfect Timing

Paers

With just one game left in this years NBA regular season schedule, the Pacers are showing that they are still one of the favorites to unseat the current eastern conference and NBA champions the Miami Heat.

The pacers defeated the Oklahoma City thunder in a game that came down to the wire. Indiana won the game 102-97, maintaining their advantage over the Miami Heat. The pacers own the tie-breaker over the heat, its important the pacers secure home court advantage over Miami. If last years playoffs is any indication of what the future holds for the pacers then it’s very important they get the home court advantage.

The playoffs are in six days and by defeating the thunder who also are serious contenders in the western conference, Indiana seems to be back on track and playing the good and competitive basketball they were playing in the first half of the season. I think this is Miami’s last year at the summit of the east and the NBA, and although the pacers have talent and the perfect blend of youth and experience I don’t see them knocking the LeBron led heat of their throne. The playoffs will be interesting this year and I absolutely cannot wait for it to begin.

Slow Pace

TheIndiana Pacers have been on somewhat of a slump lately,dropping games they have no business losing The Pacers dropped a game they needed to keep the heat on Miami for home court advantage in the playoffs.

It seems they’ve fallen of the rails a bit down the home stretch of the season, with today’s loss they’re now two games back in the loss column behind the heat. The pacers will still meet the heat one more time before the season is over, however their next opponent are the struggling bucks, they will need this need this game find get their swagger back.

I think the team best suited to dethrone the heat are the pacers but they have to learn to stop being their own worst enemy first.
