MIAMI – Instead of being knotted at a game apiece, these Eastern Conference finals could very easily be 2-0 right now.
It could be 2-0 for Indiana. Or maybe just as easily, 2-0 for Miami.
The first two games of the series were down-to-the-wire affairs, the deciding play of Miami's victory in Game 1 coming as time expired, the sealing moment of the Pacers' win in Game 2 coming with about 8 seconds remaining.
And now the series shifts to the Pacers' home on Sunday, a glorious sports day for Indianapolis. There's the Indy 500 during the day, then Game 3 of Heat-Pacers at night. By night's end, one team will be two wins from the NBA Finals.
