Pacers to Face Heat in Second Round
by Jeff Tzucker
Wednesday, May 10 – To be the best, you have to beat the best. At least, that's what the Eastern Conference standings are saying.
With the injured Bulls fighting for their playoff lives against the Philadelphia 76ers, the Heat appear to be on their way to being the top seed left standing in the Eastern Conference. The number 3 seed Pacers (4-1 postseason, 42-24 regular season) face the number 2 seed Heat (4-1 postseason, 46-20 regular season) in the second round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs with a berth in the Eastern Conference Finals on the line.
The Heat are led by their "Big 3" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, while the Pacers bring their octopus offense to bear in the second round matchup.
