Pretty much. As much as it pains me to say it, the Heat probably won a title tonight. Getting the Heat knocked out before they got the 3rd member of their all-star squad back was really the only way to stop them IMO. They'll get Bosh back, but not even really need him for whichever wreck of a team comes out of the Philly/Boston series, and then be well rested while OKC/SA beat each other up over the next two weeks.
Indiana played good for an up and comer, and if they can get all their pieces back in place for next year, they could be a strong team again. They really need to get some sort of scoring threat for the second line, because for as hard as Hansbrough/Amundsen/Barbosa play, the lack of offense on that line killed Indiana tonight. The Heat used their time on the floor to catch up, and it was pretty much over from there.
It was VERY frustrating to see the Pacers get away from what worked for them again in the second half. They dominated the paint in the first half, yet went right back to jacking up 3's after halftime. I just don't understand why.
