It depends.  If Wade is healthy and plays like he did in the regular season last season, then no one is on the Heat's level.  If Wade plays anything close to how he played in the playoffs, I can definitely see the Pacers winning in a 7-game series.  I would not be easy, but I can see it as a very very realistic outcome.

Lol that'd be sick.  But they'd have to throw in a few picks, or a few prospects. Cheesy
pacers will be very good for a while,  throw in an unprotected first(which will be a late 1st) and get it done larry.  

but wait til dec/jan to see what that leg is looking like  Wink
with a healthy rondo added the pacers will beat the heats, its just that simple.

I'd rather roll with rondo than take a chance at trying to turn Granger into Manu.  This is as good a window as any, I say go for it.  George and Hibbert will still be locked up long term.

Pacers would have to have home court to beat the Heat.

Indiana won game 2 IN Miami.  Plus, Indiana lost game 1 by ONE point in Miami.  Indiana's second worst loss was at home.

That is true but I just think they need the confidence of home court to get over the top. It can change everything.

But it may all be moot because I expect them to lose to Cleveland (If healthy) in the first round or maybe the Wizards.

Okay, you are just too stupid to even debate.  According to you Indiana is not a contender and will lose to a projected 7th or 8th seed.

Yes because having an opinion about a matchup is stupid and I have Cleveland or Washington as the sixth seed.

You have an opinion that makes no sense and goes against all available evidence.  You claim that a team that that was a game away from the Finals last season, which has made amazing improvements to its bench, is not a contender and will likely lose in the first round despite having HCA. 

Yeah, that is really stupid.

Upsets happen, the playoffs are about matchups not to mention if injuries occur.

I am SO glad you brought up injuries.  You think INJURIES are what might HELP a team headlined by Kyrie Irving, Andrew Bynum, and Anderson Varejao beat a team that was without their best scorer for all of last season and was almost in the Finals?

Wow...

It depends on who gets injured, if Paul George went down instead it may have been a different story.

Of course, but you could say that for any team and any player.  Paul George has never had an injury in the NBA, and it is just hysterical that you use injuries as the possible reason why the Pacers would lose to the Cavs.

Maybe maybe maybe

The Pacers were the second best team in the East last season and made big upgrades to their bench.  All these maybes could happen, but realistically, they are better than they were last season, and that spells trouble for the Heat.
