The Miami Heat thought that they were going to close out the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 but they failed in the final minutes to get past a Pacers team that had notoriously collapsed in the fourth quarter this series. Now both teams have landed in a Game 6 scenario that could truly be series changing if Indiana can pull off another big win.
While they were boosted by the home crowd in Game 5, the Pacers will need to quiet a ruckus Heat friendly crowd in Miami on Friday night and that’s a lot easier said than done. It’s not an impossible task but it’s one that the pacers have not demonstrated enough guts to where we can confidently say that they have a chance in Game 6.
