The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers will be taking the court for the second time in the Eastern Conference Finals with the Heat looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Indiana in Game 1. The Pacers controlled the game from the opening tip, so the Heat will be coming out on Tuesday night looking to be aggressive from the jump.
Indiana plans on being prepared.
“He (LeBron James) will shoulder everything. I think he’s going to be much more aggressive with the ball,” Pacers star Paul George said, via ESPN.com. “I think he’s going to be looking to make more plays, looking to shoot more shots and really looking to get guys going. It’s going to be a tough night for me, but that’s part of the league.”
LeBron and company will be looking to make adjustments so that they can draw even in the series, but the Pacers will be ready for whatever changes come their way.
“We know we’re playing against the champions, the two-time champions,” George said.
“We know they’re going to come out and make adjustments. Everything we did (Sunday) has got to be that much more in Game 2 in order for us to move on.”
It will be interesting to see which team’s strategy works out the best.
