LeBron James' buzzer-beating lay-up in overtime in Game 1 was the difference between these two teams on Wednesday night, but instead of being downhearted the Indiana Pacers are ready to bounce back.

 

Coach Frank Vogel says their "belief has been strengthened" after pushing the defending champions to the brink of defeat on their home court, and they will hope to do a better job of closing it out.

 

James had a triple-double on the night, and will be key again, while Chris "Birdman" Andersen will find it tough to repeat his perfect shooting night after going 7-for-7 from the field.

 

On the other side of the court, the Pacers will need All-Star Paul George to produce another strong performance, while also cutting down on the number of turnovers.

 

This is reminiscent of last season, where Indiana lost the first match-up in their second round series with the Heat before taking away home-court advantage in Game 2.

 

The Pacers have shown they are capable of going toe-to-toe with Miami, and so this could be another close game.
