Indiana Pacers Robbed vs. Miami Heat, Still NBA’s Best Team

+Read full article

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers were simply robbed last night. The Pacers controlled this game for three plus quarters but let their guard down late. They let the Miami Heat claw back primarily with the three-point shot to pull out a victory in the end.

To make matters worse, Pacers young superstar Paul George looked like he was clearly fouled by LeBron James beyond the three-point line, but the whistles were silent. Talk about home-court advantage. This Pacers team looked superior to the Heat for much of the 48 minutes.

They were dominating the Heat until Pacers big man Roy Hibbert got in foul trouble and had to sit out the majority of the fourth quarter. Not coincidentally this is when the Heat managed to get back in the game.

If you remember back in Indiana, the Pacers took care of the Heat rather easily and won the game by a few possessions. It was not so easy for the Heat. In fact, if not for them getting hot from three-point range this would have been a convincing road win for the Pacers.

The Pacers look like the better team. Their size dwarfs the Heat, and their starting five plays better as a unit. The Heat have the great equalizer in James though. When they got hot from beyond the arc they can also win games they have no business winning.

Regardless of the loss the Pacers are still the best team in the league. If not for foul trouble from their big man and a questionable call at the end the scoreboard would look very different.

When all is said and done the Pacers will be the last team standing in the Eastern Conference.
