I'm a little confused as to what you mean because the Pacers almost lost to the Heat without Bosh. It wasn't like it was a convincing win because Bosh was out so I don't see the Pacers dominating just because they are home.

Heat only lost by 19, so you were close.

How can anyone with a brain blame this loss even remotely on Lebron?

Bosh out. Wade SUCKED tonight.

Case closed.

Without bosh, the heat are very vulnerable. Going to be an easy pass for the wcf champ this year due to injuries.

Why can't you just admit that you were wrong? You said that the Pacers are losing game 3 for sure. I think you are either watching a different series than me or you are being completely bias. The Heat REALLY REALLY need Bosh.

I'm really starting to get annoyed this morning. I listened to several different sports talk radio stations this morning, and all of them were playing the role of "Lebron Apologist" and saying how the Heat aren't the same team without Bosh. ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

The Bulls went without their #1 player in Derrick Rose, The Magic were without Dwight Howard, but did you hear them whining? Screw Miami, they've had injuries like everybody else. I don't care if Bosh is out, the Heat still have arguably two of the top 15 players in the league and they couldn't get it done.

That's why Lebron left Cleveland. Now, no one even whispers a word about Cleveland unless it has something to do with Lebron. He put that team in the spotlight and back on the map.

I love Heat fans. It was all Cleveland's fault, Dan Gilbert's fault, his teammates fault, etc....

I really don't wish LeBron any ill will and am almost starting to feel sorry for him but I absolutely LOVE the fact that all the Heat "fans" and ESPN are getting egg on their faces.

The one that's really got egg on his face is the Commish, Stern. He's looking at a OKC/San Antonio-Indiana finals. Not exactly a marketing centerpiece for the league. Only the true fans of the sport would watch, which is a shame, because it would be great basketball. Maybe the Celtics or Heat can somehow resurrect themselves, but Stern knows if the Pacers beat the Heat, there's a good chance it's going to be a ratings nightmare this year. I look for a lot of cheap fouls between now and the time the Eastern Conf. finals are done.

As a true fan, I'd much rather see Spurs-Pacers (two teams that actually play together and are fun to watch) than cHeat-Clippers/Lakers. Granted, you are right that the ratings would be much higher for the latter, but it's good for the league that these so-called 'superteams' be beat down & eliminated for the betterment of the league long-term.

That said, the Finals will actually be the Western Conference Finals when the Spurs-Thunder meet, hope that series goes 7 games. Pacers, Celtics nor Miami have what it takes to beat either of those two.
