Miami won Game 1 with a 113-101 margin thanks to a strong finish by Jimmy Butler late and a really effective 21 point second half by Goran Dragic. The game was a close one, and a good start to what should be a great series.
Game 2’s are always the ones that show us the pedigree of a coach — what adjustments will be made to make the team more efficient and productive? The Heat will return healthy, although Jae Crowder is listed as questionable with and ankle. Victor Oladipo is also questionable after he suffered an eye injury in the first quarter of Game 1 and didn’t return.
The Heat will hope to get Duncan Robinson off to a better start and if they can limit the Pacers transition points, as they did in the second half, they should be in much better shape.
The game will start at 1 p.m. and will be broadcast on TNT.
