Paul George’s is the odds on favorite (-3) at home in this one, and with Dwyane Wade questionable might stay away from the Heat in this one.
Here is the TV info for this grudge match which tips off at 7 PM EST.

The Pacers are coming off of a big loss on the road, so if you are feeling the Heat on a whim they do have the best player in the world. I’m betting though on the Pacers familiarity with the Heat after last Spring’s playoff series and the fact that Wade will most likely not play.
“I wouldn’t say we had tired legs,” George said after the loss. “But the Thunder definitely knew what we were up against. They knew this was a back-to-back night for us. They came out with that urgency to really run us and see if we could compete and match their energy.”
With the Pacers not coming off a back to back this time would expect them to have fresh legs and getting a big lead early in the first. James could end up having a triple double and making me look stupid too, so no angry tweets if that happens okay? Just kidding, you are allowed.
