(MIAMI, FL) - The Indiana Pacers face the Miami Heat in Game Two of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series tonight at AmericanAirlines Arena in South Florida.
The Heat pulled away late to a 95-86 victory in Game One on Sunday to take the lead in the best-of-seven series.
The difference in the opener was LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. James, the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player, scored 16 of his game-high 32 points in the fourth quarter with Wade adding 29.
The Pacers will be looking for more production from Danny Granger and Paul George. Granger had seven points on 1-for-10 shooting in Game One while George hit one of his five shots from the field for six points.
Chris Bosh will miss tonight's game and is possibly out for the remainder of the series after suffering a lower abdominal strain in the Heat's Game-One victory. An MRI on Monday confirmed the original diagnosis.
While Bosh could miss some time, Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra acknowledges that the injury could have been worse. Bosh went down late in the first half of Sunday's game as he drove for a dunk and was fouled by Indiana's Roy Hibbert. Bosh hit the free throw but collapsed to the floor during the Pacers' ensuing possession and was removed from the game.
Catch all the action starting at 6:30pm tonight on 1340 AM WBIW.
