Indiana Pacers

No fans of this team? They just beat the rockets by 33 points.
How could you stop them?

I ain`t a fan of theirs, but I have huge respect for them and how they managed to slowly built such a quality team.

They have a great roster but unfortunately with George Hill running the point, I think the Heat will feel good about their chances.

Yes, the heat when it comes to facing pacers should try to limit rebounding advantage for pacers. On other hand pacers should try to limit turnovers.

Having said that, I got whoever has homecourt winning it in playoffs.Last 12 games between regular season and playoffs between heat and pacers is 6 - 6 ( 5 wins for heat at home, 5 wins for pacers at home). Winning at road against the one other is tough feat for both sides.

Pacers are 4 games better then the heat now. It now looks like pacers are the big favorites to win the east.

Still keeping up their impressive home form. Now they beat Clippers quite easily and never letting them play their own quick-paced transition game.

I would call them the main title favorites this year.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Pacers have signed Andrew Bynum for the rest of the season. Despite all his injuries, disciplinary problems and lack of motivation, he is still a quality big and an upgrade over Mahinmi as backup to Hibbert.

Indiana must now be favorites for the NBA title. Playing the best D in the league with Hibbert, West, George, Stephenson, plus an extremely deep bench in Scola, Granger, Bynum and CJ Watson, I don't see any team with the depth and talent to stop them.

This is probably their one and only chance for a title given they are not likely to retain Stephenson next year since they already have Hibbert and George locked in on max contracts. With Indiana being a small city franchise and Stephenson (unrestricted FA) certain of getting many big money offers this summer, I don't see them willing to pay the tax penalty so they will likely let him walk.

I think the Heat will surprise them

I think there's a possibility Bynum could pick up an unexpected injury in the playoffs. But even if he doesn't, I think LeBron James will go freak mode and starting going off on this Pacers team. He's done it against OKC in the past and I think he'll do it again against the Pacers since this team turns over the ball a lot. If the Pacers are smart, they should allow Lance Stephenson to do the ball handling. He can find the bigs.

I agree about Stephenson potentially leaving. The Bulls will be the main suitors if he's interested. We need a playmaker and individual scorer badly with Rose out. He'd fit perfectly and can clock tons of minutes at the 1 and the 2.
