Tonight marks the night in which this Eastern Conference Finals series could be defined, as the Indiana Pacers are limping into Game 3 against the Miami Heat but it’s hard to tell if that limp is from fatigue or from a fatal wound suffered in Game 2. So far, the Pacers have seemingly bounced back well off the court from their struggles in Game 2 and Paul George seems to be ready for action after suffering a concussion this past week.
As for the Heat, they were able to get a game in Indiana and leave town with the series tied but the work is far from over. The Pacers came out hustling in Game 1 and had it not been for an utter confusion on how to have fourth quarter closing strength, this series could be looking very different.
Game 3 will be a game in which the Heat can either send a message with a resounding win or keep this Pacers narrative alive with a so-so out that either ends in near defeat or defeat altogether.
Here’s a quick look at the playoff bracket so we can chart just how we got here.
