Miami Heat at Indiana Pacers in GIFs


The two best teams in the Eastern Conference (and maybe in the entire league) are doing battle Tuesday night in Indiana. The 18-3 Pacers are playing host the 16-5 Miami Heat.

These two teams proved to be the best in the east last season when they met in the Eastern Conference Finals, a series won by the Heat in seven games.

The Heat followed that series win by defeating the San Antonio Spurs to win their second consecutive NBA championship.

This time, it was the Pacers who came from behind to earn a 90-84 victory.

Now, let’s take a look at the action between the two teams in GIFs.

It wasn’t a good start for Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who missed a pair of layups.

Pacers’ point guard George Hill topped Wade by air balling a free throw a few possessions later.
