Vote: Boston Celtics vs. Indiana Pacers

The ultimate goal for each of the 16 teams in the NBA postseason is 16 wins a parade with a very shiny trophy. But the journey begins with a best-of-seven challenge in the first round. Will any of the favorites fall victim to overconfidence in the postseason's opening stanza? For that matter, do the seedings really tell us who the favorites are? We're asking SportsNation to break down each opening-round series.

No. 3 Boston vs. No. 6 Indiana: The Pacers did away with a three-game losing streak by making sure Reggie Miller's last regular season home game was a W worth remembering. In addition to surviving a last second shot by the Bulls that would have tied the game, Miller was saluted by a calvacade of friends and former teammates after the game and received a shiny new car to ride off into the sunset. Can the Pacers keep the good vibes rolling against the Celtics?
