MIAMI – For the Miami Heat, it's a chance to go to the NBA Finals.
For the Indiana Pacers, it's a chance to show if they're any closer to unseating the Heat atop the Eastern Conference.
The East finals could end on Saturday night, if the Heat find a way to go into Indianapolis and win Game 6 against the Pacers. That's what happened in their second-round series last year, when the teams split the first four games, Miami won Game 5 at home and then went on the road to close out Indiana.
Pacers star Paul George says Game 6 will determine how much his team has grown. Meanwhile, LeBron James and the Heat want their next home game to be Game 1 of the finals, not Game 7 with Indiana.
