Pacers had a very good (but quiet) season. They are not an easy out for people and with Bosh out (and that's huge) they can beat Miami.

The fact that the Pacers had a quiet season has more to do with the fact that they do not have any "stars" that the NBA will promote the heck out of and the media, like ESPN, will focus on. They had a better regular season than the Clippers and who got far more attention?

Where was LeBron at the end of game 2? The MVP of the league and he disappears in the closing seconds.

Where are all the people at who said that the Heat would be unstoppable?

Well, and the fact of the matter is that but for injuries the Pacers would have no real shot at the ECF.

The Clippers get alot of attention because they've popped up out of the gutter but yeah, your comments about star power are entirely correct.

The Nba tried to hype grainger for a while but he is injury prone and just wasn't what they expected. Plus it's a small market. They are gonna have to get a #1 pick or win something. Like the spurs did. Spurs still don't get much respect or hype but I love their news playoffs commercial.

San Antonio has quietly retooled since their last championship, Chicago and OKC are young and hungry( but growing in experience by the year), and well the Lakers are always a blockbuster trade away from being right in the thick of things. And now with Bosh's injury, odds are much longer on them even getting to the finals this year.

Yes you are being a prisoner of the moment because the Heat lost that game because of poor free throw shooting not because the Pacers played that much better. I expect the heat to win Game 3 in Indiana and regain control of the series especially since the Pacers celebrated being TIED in the series instead of being ahead. When will teams learn that just because you are going home doesn't mean you will automatically win both games.

Nah the heat took 2 more free throws and missed only 1 more free throw then the pacers did. The heat where just out hustled. Out executed. Out played. Those heavy minutes lebron and wade have played all year are adding up on them.

Goodbye Lakers.

Had they won this game, they would have had a chance.

Metta World Peace is stupid.

They stopped going inside, one of the worst playoff collapses by the Lakers ever.

What an awful loss by the Lakers. Kobe was kobe late in the game, forcing bad shots.

Up by 7 with 2 minutes left? DAMN Lakers fans must be pissed lol.
