This is a lithmus test for Paul George...

 

Is he a star?

Pacers success simply relies on the play of both David West and Roy Hibbert as well as the health of George Hill.  If those aspects mesh, I say Pacers in 6

Let's just be real here: There are going to be games where the Heat are LEGITIMATELY better, and games where the Pacers are legitimately better. The problem is that there's no way in hell the ref's don't rig this series. We've seen it before, and know that it will happen.

 

The thing that irritates me the most is that Miami will have those couple of games where they are legitimately better, but the other couple that they win with the ref's rigging it won't be noticed because of the games where they won without ref help.

Everyone complains about the refs with the Heat.

 

However, when the Lakers win their rings and other fans complain about the refs giving it to the Lakers everyone lashes out around here.

 

Complete homer irrationality.  Again, so many of you let your heart rule your head - just silly.

Its pretty clear by watching the game that Lebron gets any call he wants. I just hope the refs are as consistent as they were in the Bulls-Heat series.

Heat in 6.

I'd love to see the Pacers knock them off but I'll have to see how committed the Pacers are to playing their game instead of the Heat's.

If the Pacers are going to keep up with the thrash talk, then the Heat are already getting into their heads. You don't beat the Heat when they mentally get the better of you.

Pacers in 7


But if the refs call a foul on every Hibbert contest at the rim and every LeBron miss when George is guarding him...


Then Heat in 6.
Yes, I'm glad you point this out. Every single one of you reading this and following this series should know going into it that the refs will play one of the most if not the most pivotal roles in determining the outcome of this entire series and how it goes. It's sad to say, but they really will.
 
If the Pacers are not allowed to play their physical style of ball and have a ton of ticky tacks & cheap fouls called on them while Miami's allowed to flop (as they're known for and tend to get away with), then this will be totally disheartening & a shame for the league.

LakeShow805, I heard and read the same things when the Lakers were winning.

 

You can't have it both ways.  Refs make good calls and refs make bad calls.  If you play strong and aggressive you get calls.  It's been that way since the league began.  If teams and fans don't know that by now, then there's nothing else to say.

Heat in 6. Pacers are a solid team but dont think they will be able to keep up with the heat.

Be honest. Do we have as many floppers as the Heat? Other than Derek Fisher at times(when he was here), not really. The Heat are known for this much like the Clippers, except they are a far superior team than the Clippers obviously, so they capitalize that much more on it.


yo.

I am honest.  The same thing was said about the Lakers but somehow conveniently ignored.

 

Gotta get over your dislike for a team and watch it objectively.
