2014 Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 Thread

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

After all the drama about whether Indiana was done or not in the first couple rounds, here we are with the matchup everybody expected going into the season: Indiana vs. Miami.

Personally, I think that now that the Pacers are here, they're going to be refocused and rejuvenated, and they do have Homecourt advantage for the first time against the Heat, something that was a goal for them this season.  They split the season series 2-2, and last year lost 4-3 to the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

This will easily be the toughest test Miami has had yet in the playoffs, but you can't count out the champions until they're actually out, and they should probably still be considered the favorites going in.

Today's schedule:

#1 Indiana Pacers vs. #2 Miami Heat Game 1 at 12:30 PM on ABC
