Pacers taking control?
The Pacers and Heat are on top of a very weak Eastern Conference, but it seems like Indiana is making a more and more compelling case each day to be considered the better of the two teams. The Pacers took care of the Warriors on Monday night while the Heat gave up 121 points in a loss to the Hawks. The Heat have lost four of their last six games and are currently 4.5 games behind the Pacers, who have won five in a row. They'll probably end up meeting in the Eastern Conference finals, but right now the result would likely be a lot different from the Heat's win last year.
