Heat eliminate Pacers in blowout win to advance to 4th straight Finals Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE/Getty Images MIAMI -- For the entirety of the regular season, the supremacy of the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference was brought into serious question by the Indiana Pacers. Then came the playoffs. And the question was answered -- emphatically. The Heat became the third franchise in NBA history to reach the title series in four consecutive seasons, a laugher of a conference-title finale getting them there again Friday night. Lebron James and Chris Bosh each scored 25 points, and Miami eliminated the Pacers for the third straight year with a 117-92 romp in Game 6 of the East championship series. "I'm blessed. Very blessed. Very humbled," James said. "And we won't take this opportunity for granted. It's an unbelievable franchise, it's an unbelievable group. And we know we still have work to do, but we won't take this for granted. We're going to four straight Finals and we will never take this for granted." Dwy ...
MIAMI — The Miami Heat embarrassed the Indiana Pacers. But worse, the Pacers embarrassed themselves. The Pacers came back to Miami for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals and were outplayed and overmatched in a contest that was decided before the first half ended. The Heat hammered the Pacers 11
INDIANAPOLIS -- This is how maddening and frustrating the Indiana Pacers are: Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, I desperately wanted Chris Bosh's last-second, baseline 3-pointer to fall. I wanted this series and this season over. These schizophrenic Pacers are torture. A Pacers logo adorns the welcome mat at my front door. An autographed Reggie Miller jersey greets visitors as they enter my Los Angeles apartment. I've loved the Pacers for 40-plus years. I've loved rooting against the Heat for four years. I'm irate Bosh's shot skidded off the front of the rim. I'm mad Lebron James drove to his right, directly into Roy Hibbert's help-side defense, forcing a kickout to Bosh. I'm cynical of the officiating that tagged James with his fifth foul less than four minutes into the third quarter after Lance Stephenson lassoed and swam past the NBA's ruling king for a loose ball. I'm afraid Wednesday's victory is going to prolong the denial, the false belief that these Pacers are some sort o ...

Lance Stephenson: Lesson learned espn.com news services | May 28, 2014 INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson says he made a mistake by taking his trash talk public. Following an early afternoon shootaround ahead of Wednesday night's Game 5, Stephenson said he and teammate Paul George both said things they shouldn't have. "I think this stuff bothered us a little bit," Stephenson told reporters. "It's part of the game. I think I said some things that shouldn't have been said. Also Paul. We just gotta play basketball and stop worrying about all the other stuff." The Heat lead the Eastern Conference Finals 3-1 and can clinch a spot in the Nba Finals for a fourth straight season with a win Wednesday. NBA officials fined George $25,000 for criticizing the officiating in Game 4. George said he expected the fine after complaining about "home cooking" and saying the Pacers "outplayed" the Heat everywhere except the free throw line during Monday night's 102-90 loss in Miami. "I knew I was going to g ...

I want the Indiana Pacers to win the Eastern Conference Finals but the reality is that they just don't have enough scoring power. LeBron can be off and DWade, Ray Allen or even Mario Chalmers will pick up the slack. Lance Stephenson is too erratic and Paul George doesn't have the killer instinct. Spurs will beat the Heat but Heat will beat the Thunder.

Indiana Pacers r the worst team n the EASTERN CONFERENCE!
Turning Up the Intensity the N.B.A. playoffs, everyone is looking to win it all, and no one, thankfully, is thinking about the lottery. So after all the talk during the regular season about which teams were tanking in hopes of landing top draft picks, it will be refreshing to watch game after game in which the only objective is to score the most points. Of course, figuring out which team can do that all the way to an N.B.A. championship is a bit complicated. In the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat seemingly took a step back from last season, with clear regression by two older players, Ray Allen and Shane Battier. The Indiana Pacers looked like title contenders for much of the season before grinding to a near halt in the last month, partly because of an overtaxed starting lineup. In the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs rolled to another top seed in the playoffs, and it would be foolish to bet against them. Still, age caught up to Manu Ginobili in last year's postseason, and it will eventually ge ...
From the Forget Ellis Sports Network: The Miami Heat will three-peat as NBA Champions. It’s been a long and excruciating winter for all of us (well not all of us, our friends to the south are continuing to freeze in their 80-degree weather), so I can understand if you haven’t been paying much attention to the NBA. In case you missed it, let me fill you in on what you’ve missed before diving into the playoff preview: - The San Antonio Spurs are really good … again. They finished the season with the best overall record at 62-20. - Kevin Durant will win the MVP. - No team wanted to take the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The Indiana Pacers eventually snagged it with a 56-26 record. Why is that significant? They were 40-12 at the All Star Break and finished the year with a 16-14 record including a 6-9 record in their last 15 games. - The Western Conference is loaded. The worst team in the West playoffs, Dallas (49-33) would have finished third in the East. - The Miami Heat look vulnerable ...
Pacers number one seed in East: Heat lose 114-93 to Wizards; Pacers get top seed By JOSEPH WHITE (AP Sports Writer) 11 hours ago AP - Sports . Heat vs. Wizards WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lebron James' only visible significant role was that of postgame heckler, interrupting Michael Beasley's interview amid a loose, upbeat locker room that normally wouldn't jibe with a 21-point loss - or throwing in a towel in the race for a No. 1 seed. Game Leaders Michael Beasley Michael Beasley Miami Pts: 18 Reb: 5 Ast: 3 Trevor Ariza Trevor Ariza Washington Pts: 25 Reb: 3 Ast: 2 James and Chris Bosh took the night off Monday, and the Heat were beaten 114-93 by the Washington Wizards in a no-contest game that guaranteed the Eastern Conference's top seed for the Indiana Pacers. So, no disappointment at all? ''There would be no disappointment,'' said Dwyane Wade, who played because he needed some minutes after his recent nine-game layoff with a hamstring injury. ''When the playoffs start, we have a new season and we will be lookin ...

PREDICTION: The Indiana Pacers have won the NBA Eastern Conference and home court advantage throughout the Eastern conference playoffs with the win against OKC today. Miami lost their chance against the Atlanta Hawks last night. Indiana will win their next game and even if Miami wins their next two (which I doubt they will) and end with the same record as Indiana, they will end with the tie breaker going to the Pacers.

Exhausted Indiana Pacers Sat Out All Five Starters With his team dragging of late, Indiana Pacers head coach first gave his five starters a day off from practice Tuesday, then had Paul George, David West, Roy Hibbert, Lance Stephenson and George Hill watch Wednesday night’s thrilling 104-102 win in Milwaukee from the bench. The gamble paid off as the Pacers continue to battle for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Per the Journal Sentinel and NBA.com: Indiana coach Frank Vogel said in his pre-game remarks that the Pacers consulted with the league about the decision to sit all five starters Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Vogel said four of the regulars (would) dress but (would) not play under any circumstance. Center Roy Hibbert (was) inactive for the game. Vogel said league officials did not have a problem with the Pacers’ decision.

March 19, 1995 -- One day after announcing "I'm back," and after 21 months of mini-retirement, Michael Jordan suits up for the Chicago Bulls at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis. The struggling Bulls are just 34-31 after a 3-game win streak, but suffer a 103-96 overtime loss to the Indiana Pacers in Jordan's return. The former 3-time NBA champion shoots 7-for-28 and scores 19 points to go with six rebounds and six assists. Over the final 17 games of the season, he will average 26.9 points per game, but the Bulls manage only a 3rd-place finish in the Central Division, and will lose in six games to the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

A group of fed-up New York Knicks fans will protest what they call the "systemic and consistently recurring lack of responsible decision-making at Madison Square Garden" by owner James Dolan and team executives before a home game against the Indiana Pacers on March 19. "We understand Dolan will not sell. We understand change may not come of this. We just want our voices heard," Mark Griffin, one of the organizers of the protest, wrote in an emailed statement. "We want to remind Dolan and the NBA that our voices matter. We buy the tickets, the jerseys, the NBA League Pass subscriptions. We are frustrated. We are tired. We deserve better." The Knicks, who declined to comment Thursday, have performed far below Dolan's stated expectations this season. They snapped a seven-game losing streak with a win over Minnesota on Wednesday but are 19 games under .500 and 5½ games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The fan group that has organized the protest -- KF4L (Knicks Fans For Lif ...

*Final Score: Indiana Pacers 97, Brooklyn Nets 96* Despite turning the basketball over 23 times, the Indiana Pacers (36-10) still managed to narrowly defeat the Brooklyn Nets (20-25) in a hard-fought Eastern Conference matchup on Saturday night. The Nets, who were playing on the second night of a back-to-back, grabbed 27 total rebounds. That's 10 more than the 17 they had on Jan. 31 against the OKC Thunder, which was the lowest secured by any team in NBA history. Indiana was led by *Roy Hibbert* and *Paul George* , who both scored 20 points. *David West* had 17 points and seven rebounds, including a spurt of clutch free-throw shooting late in the fourth quarter which helped seal the victory for the Pacers. *Deron Williams* (six points, 3-of-12 shooting) hit a three-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining to bring the Nets to within one of Indiana. By that point, there was simply not enough time left in the game for Brooklyn to complete their comeback. Shaun Livingston was one of the main reasons why Brooklyn w ...

INDIANAPOLIS -- Even though they shot well in the first half, the Indiana Pacers knew that wasn't what would win them the game. Turning up their defense in the third quarter was what it took to pull away from the Brooklyn Nets. Paul George scored 24 points and Lance Stephenson added 23 to lead the Pacers to a 105-91 victory over on Saturday night. George Hill finished with 21 points for the Pacers, who put five players in double figures and pulled away with a third-quarter burst. "This team has a unique way of figuring a team out as the game goes on," coach Frank Vogel said. "We only forced four turnovers in the first half, so we did feel they were a little too comfortable on the defensive end." Roy Hibbert scored 11 and David West 10 for Indiana, which leads the Eastern Conference at 23-6. Stephenson also had nine rebounds and seven assists. "We felt like we've got to be aggressive, and come out with more energy," George said. "We were allowing guys to beat us on 1-on-1 plays. If we are going to get beat ...
LeBron (ankle) misses practice Lebron James sat out of the Miami Heat's light practice Tuesday to rest his sore left ankle, and he's considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. James sustained the injury late in the third quarter of Monday's 117-94 victory against the Utah Jazz when he tripped over his own foot while attempting to drive to the basket in transition. James left the court and sat out the first seven minutes of the fourth quarter before returning and finishing the game. The defending champs are trying to three-peat. The four-time league MVP is expected to receive treatment throughout Tuesday and into Wednesday before his status is determined for the matchup between the teams with the best records in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers beat the Heat 90-84 last week in Indianapolis. Speaking after Tuesday's practice, James said his ankle felt "about the same" as it did Monday night and that he would not have played if the Heat had a game Tuesday. "Very stiff, very so ...

411: The San Antonio Spurs have won their 10th straight game in the NBA, cruising to a 126-96 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Spurs blitzed Cleveland 35-11 in the second quarter to set up their victory, while San Antonio sank 16 three-pointers as they moved to the top of the Western Conference with a 12-1 win-loss record.

Here my Eastern Conference standings predictions for the 2013-2014 season. 1. Miami Heat- Lebron James. Chris Bosh. Dwayne Wade. Oh and they pretty much replaced Jwuan Howard and Mike Miller with Greg Oden and Michael Beasley. 2. Indiana Pacers- Another year for Paul George to improve. Can also say the same about Roy Hibbert. Danny Granger is back. Replaced Psycho T with a better back up PF, Luis Scola. Added CJ Watson, Chris Copeland. Stacked team. 3. Chicago Bulls- Derrick Rose is back. MVP Candidate, healthy Deng, Noah, and Hinrich. Had an underrated free agent signing with Mike Dunleavy Jr. They also have the 3rd best coach in the league. 4. Brooklyn Nets- Just look at their starting 5. They finished 4th in the East last year. And had Reggie Evans at PF. Now Kevin Garnett plays PF. Could be a top 3 team. But can Kidd coach them. And will it work. Probably the most stacked team in the NBA other then Miami. But Lakers did this last year and they finished 7th in the west. 5. New York Knicks- Carmelo Anth ...

Lebron James scored 32 points, and the Miami Heat beat the Indiana Pacers, 99-76, in the seventh and deciding game of the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami
Straight from nytimes Dynamic Once More, Duo Lifts Heat to Finals By HOWARD BECK Last Updated: 10:47 GMT+07:00 MIAMI — The beacon that drew Lebron James to South Beach on that fateful July day three years ago was not a glowing trophy or the bright, bright sun. It was the promise of a partnership and the certain glory that would come with it. James and Dwyane Wade. Wade and James. Two basketball titans, one powerful friendship, and a parade route to be determined. The arrangement has been tested at times this spring, by stiff defense and Wade’s achy knee, but the two found themselves back in perfect harmony just in time to save the Miami Heat’s hopes for a second consecutive championship. James dominated on Monday night, Wade joined him and soon the Heat were celebrating their third straight Eastern Conference title with a 99-76 rout of the Indiana Pacers in an anticlimactic Game 7. The Heat will face the San Antonio Spurs in the finals, which open Thursday night at American Airlines Arena. Wade had ...

Miami put Lebron James right in the middle of the action Sunday night, and this time, the Indiana Pacers didn't have an answer for him or his Miami Heat teammates. By moving James to the post, the Heat won the scoring battle in the paint, kept Indiana at arm's length and pulled away for a 114-96 victory and a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. "I made a conscious effort to get down in the post tonight, to put pressure on their defense," James said. "The coaching staff wanted me to be down there tonight, and my teammates allowed me to do that." It was a move reminiscent of when the Los Angeles Lakers played Magic Johnson in the post in place of the injured Kareem Abdul-Jabbar during the Nba Finals more than two decades ago. And it worked just as well.

[sport] The Indiana Pacers knew during Friday’s Game 2 that Lebron James would probably be the reason for any close defeat. What they probably didn’t guess is that Lebron James beating himself would end up being the reason for the change in tone and outlook of this Eastern Conference final. For most of Game 2, there was absolutely nothing the Indiana Pacers could do about James. The team guarded him smartly, with tough and athletic All-Star Paul George ignoring foul trouble and an embarrassing end to Game 1 to stick with James throughout. Indiana’s league-best defense funneled him to uncomfortable spots on the wing and minded him expertly in transition. By the time the end of the fourth quarter hit, James (who finished with 36 points while hitting 70 percent of his shots) had dragged his Heat to what seemed like was going to be a 2-0 series lead.

Eastern Conference: 1 Miami Heat VS 5: Chicago Bulls- Miami is going to steamroll to another NBA championship. Just wanted to get that out of the way. Chicago eeked past a good Brooklyn team. Now they face a great juggernaut. Prediction: Heat in 5. 2 New York Knicks VS 3: Indiana Pacers- Some people will probably call this a throwback to the 90's, when these teams met seemingly every year in the playoffs. It will be a good series, but the rivalry between these teams has simmered down over the years. Both teams started dominantly in the first round, only to be pushed to a sixth and decisive game. I think the Knicks have the edge on offense, and home court. Indiana has the edge on defense. Its going to be fun. Prediction: Knicks in 7. Western Conference: 1 OKC Thunder VS 5: Memphis Grizzlies- I said in the last round that as the playoffs moved along, the Thunder would miss having James Harden to come off the bench. Now they are also missing their star point guard Russel Westbrook. Memphis plays slow it down ...
Indiana Pacers vs Chicago Bulls tomorrow at 8 *** I want to go so I can see how disappointed you bulls fans get when they lose to us for the 3 rd time and the only excuse y'all can give me is ahhh Derrick Rose ain't playing lol it's a team game we didn't have Ganger for 55 games and we're 2nd in the Eastern Conference give us are props
New York, Feb. 25, 2013 – The Miami Heat’s Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant today were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 24. James led the Heat to a 4-0 week, which included road wins over the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers. He averaged 23.5 points (fifth in the conference), 9.3 assists (second in the conference), 2.25 steals (third in the conference) and 7.8 rebounds. James posted two double-doubles and a 16-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound triple-double on Feb. 23 at Philadelphia as the Heat became the first club in the East to reach 40 wins. At 40-14 (.741), Miami owns a six-game advantage over the next closest Eastern Conference team, the Indiana Pacers (35-21, .625). Bryant led the Lakers to a 3-0 week, which included wins over the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers. He finished second in the conference in scoring at 31.3 ppg, and added 7.7 rebounds and 6.0 as ...

Hawks vs. Rockets Four-game win streak Atlanta has won four games in a row, including a 109-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers as 2.5-point home favorites, but all of those games came against Eastern Conference opponents. The Hawks have averaged 28.0 assists per game during that stretch, while also knocking down 34 combined three-pointers in the last three. The team is 6-5 straight up and against the spread (ATS) when taking on non-conference foes this year. Bouncing back Houston has dropped back-to-back games against two of the premier teams in the NBA, including a 124-94 blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder as 4.5-point home underdogs Saturday, while going OVER the total for the fifth time in six opportunities. The Rockets are certainly capable of bouncing back, considering they’ve gone 11-6 at home this season, including a 7-1 mark versus out-of-conference opponents. The franchise is a disappointing 1-4 ATS following a double-digit loss at home. Enjoying life on the road Sports bettors may find ...
Dylan's NBA standings review: The Indiana Pacers are currently 17-12 and 4th in the Eastern Conference, without Danny Granger? Not to mention no help from Roy Hibbert, as he has a nagging hand injury. With Gerald Green finally finding some confidence, the Pacers bench is improving, but once Granger comes back, they could be improved more than anyone else expects. As Paul George moves into Granger's spot as SF, Lance Stephenson has taken over at SG for Indiana. Stephenson is averaging 7.4 PPG, which may not sound great, but let's remember Stephenson has only played for a few years now, and he has been finding his groove recently. So when Granger comes back, the Pacers not only have their star scorer and leader back, but more talent on the bench with Stephenson being moved down. David West and Paul George's numbers have improved from last year's team that took the NBA champion Miami Heat to 6 games in the second round of the playoffs. As long Hibbert progresses, and Indiana finds a backup for George Hill, t ...
Only in the Eastern Conference could a team miss its best player for the first 29 games, see its lone 2012 All Star struggle mightily, and remain 4th in the conference standings. That has been exactly the case for the Indiana Pacers as Danny Granger has yet to see the court this season and Roy [...]
Young is perhaps the best physical matchup the Pacers have for James, and if they're going to challenge the Heat for the Eastern Conference title as they plan to do, it would behoove them to prevent James from spraying them with stat sheet-stuffing numbers.
Indiana Pacers: These guys are possibly once again the Dark Horse of the Eastern Conference. Granger, Hibbert, and Geoerge could be very
Our last day at the camp in Poland was really busy but I was able to coach my Indiana Pacers team to an Eastern Conference championship...as much as an American coach can do that in very broken Polish! "Obrona! Obrona!" Off to Auschwitz and then Krakow tomorrow and then the long journey home. It has been another amazing experience with 22 professions of faith and many more considering/asking great questions. Your missions dollars are doing incredible things here! P.S. Many thanks to my player/translator Maciek Jankowski for all his help.

Miami Heat forward Lebron James and Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granter exchange words during Game 3 of an Eastern Conference Semifinals series after an elbow.
Ok. So the Heat managed to dominate us tonight. I don't care. It's behind us now. Yeah, Danny and David West got hurt. This team has worked too hard to get to where they are now just to roll over to the overhyped Heat. I still stand by our city and the Indiana Pacers! Besides with the competition in the Western Conference, it will be tough for any team in the Eastern Conference to win the title. I hope someone proves that free agency can't buy championships. In my opinion, I hope it's the Thunder should the Blue and Gold not make it that far.

The pursuit of super teams. The Miami Heat, the New York Knicks and even these Los Angeles Clippers shredded their infrastructures and constructed themselves with starry, top-heavy rosters. The Spurs keep coming the way the Indiana Pacers have been built to do in the Eastern Conference: deep, versatile and able to attack in different ways. Oklahoma City has constructed its franchise the way thr Spurs did: Superstars drafted, developed and surrounded with proper parts. That’s how you keep costs down, chemistry strong and talent deep on the bench.
Give the Miami Heat some credit for media savvy, even as they’re getting run out of their Eastern Conference semifinal series by the Indiana Pacers. Dwyane
After Chris Bosh's Game 1 abdominal strain changed the landscape of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Indiana Pacers took advantage of their opportunity in Game 2, scratching out a 78-75 win over the Heat on Tuesday night. It wasn't pretty … Continue reading →
Damm Miami Heat got served by the Indiana Pacers today! lol Maybe for the eastern conference it'll be Celtics vs Pacers?
"During Sunday's Eastern Conference semifinal opener between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, Stern was asked what he thought about comments made by Pacers coach Frank Vogel in regards to what Vogel considered the Heat's tendency to flop." "Vogel didn't have a beef; he was just manipulating the refereeing or trying to," Stern said. "I would have fined him much more than our office did." DUDE! REALLY?! Has this guy ever watched 48 minutes of Miami Heat basketball? There's more flopping going on in that crap than a fish on land. Srcew David Stern. Somebody should fine him for being a blind, game-rigging son of a dork !!!
It is time for the Indiana Pacers to take their talents to South Beach and shake up the eastern conference.

INDIANAPOLIS -- It was just like old times at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Finally. After years of losing and players finding trouble, the Indiana Pacers finally gave their fans something to really cheer about. Danny Granger scored 25 points to help the Pacers defeat the Orlando Magic 105-87 on Tuesday night and clinch their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series 4-1.
Got to cross our fingers and hope that the Orlando Magic's season doesn't end tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana at Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the Indiana Pacers. We'll be keeping track while we watch NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. Also, hopefully, the Detroit Tigers can rebound for last night's horrible game and get a win over the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.
Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller scores eight points in 11 seconds to lead his team over the New York Knicks 107-105 on this day in 1995. Miller was famous throughout his career for what became known as "Miller Time," clutch performances to finish games. This 1995 Eastern Conference semifinal playoff was Miller’s greatest late-game display, and one of the most shocking endings to a game in NBA history.
David West had 18 points and 11 rebounds to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Orlando Magic 93-78 on Monday night and even the Eastern Conference first-round series at one game apiece.
Prediction of first round Eastern Conference playoffs: Indiana Pacers def. Orlando Magic in 5/ Atlanta Hawks def. Boston Celtics in 7
who allowed the Indiana Pacers to come 3rd in the Eastern Conference? Please someone explain what has been going on
Eastern Conference: 1 seed Bulls vs 8 seed Philly 76ers (Bulls in 5 games); 4 seed Celtics vs 5 seed ATL Hawks (Boston in 6 games); 3 seed Indiana Pacers vs 6 seed Orlando Magic (Pacers in 4 games...it's a sweep!); 2 seed Miami Heat vs 7 seed NY Knicks (Miami Heat in 6 games) I know some experts are picking the Knicks as the upset special of the first round.but I don't see it. I believe the Heat getting to finals to face the Spurs. We shall see though.it's the best time of year for me. Can't wait!!
The NBA has announced that the Orlando Magic will begin its 2012 first round, best-of-seven NBA playoff series against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, April 28 at 7 p.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Are the Hawks and Pacers for real? Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers | Comments Led by Danny Granger, the Pacers have scored 107.8 points per 100 possessions in their last 20 games, a scoring rate that would lead the league over the full season. (Ron Hoskins/NBAE via Getty Images) The season in the Eastern Conference began with two superpowers and a bunch of other teams whose absolute playoff ceiling seemed to be hosting, and probably losing, a Game 6 against the Bulls or Heat. But Miami’s recent listless play and the endless series of nagging injuries to Derrick Rose (and to a lesser extent, Luol Deng) have thrown a monkey wrench into that assumed scenario, and the discussion of which Eastern Conference teams might break up Miami-Chicago party has focused on the surging Celtics and Knicks. It has not focused on two other teams quietly peaking at the right time: Indiana and Atlanta, the latter a conference semifinalist for three straight seasons and the other a team that has proven it can at least irritate ...
