Of course I'll have my thoughts up later, but would like to know what y'all think...Pacers own the best scoring defense in the East & beat the Heat in their last meeting and held them to season team low of I believe 84 points....

What is the Best Bet tonight

  • Heat-3 (32%)
  • Pacers+3 (40%)
  • Heat/Pacers Over 183 (14%)
  • Heat/Pacers Under 183 (14%)

Thanks for your thoughts MM, what you think about Miami picking up Birdman?

Great Sparkplug to insert of the bench IMO

I like the Pacers to keep that home winning streak going, home court plus points in a low scoring game?

Give me Indy, this game should be played like a play off game. I hope they score a lot of points in the first half so I can get the under in the 2nd at a good number, I think the game will really tighten up in the second.

Nobody out for da' heat??

Seems like Miami has been sandbaggin' lately and got snubbed on T.V. by Celtics; but still a gleam in public's eye, but pacer does not evolk much confidence.

Two Questions come to mind:

1.  Is this game on T.V.?

2.  Would it not be best to take the better team; Miami & lay the baby chalk?

No genius here, tough game; starting belting down the beers and get yourself in a stupor to be in correct mind frame for betting NBA???

I think the Heat are motivated to go into All star break on a high note.  They did lose to the Celtics without Rondo which was odd but they blasted a good Nets team.   I'm by no means a Heat fan, but it seems like it's all about motivation for them and they can easily turn it on when they want too.  Like being on T.V.   Just a hunch but I believe they want to go into the All star break with some W's.  I'll be looking at Miami to cover and can't decide on the o/u.

I wonder if there will be a small let down from Miami since Evans talked some smack before the Heat -  Nets game, it motivated Lebron big time and it showed on the court. I was surprised how much he talked about it post game.This was Just a little something that crossed my mind when I looked at this game...
