Heat vs Pacers part two is here. After losing to the Pacers last Tuesday 90-84, the Miami Heat will try and even the season series on their home court tonight.

The pregame chatter isn’t at last week’s level, but there were a few gems. First, Frank Vogel is battling an illness and did not attend morning shootaround. Also, LeBron James didn’t participate in it either, due to a bum ankle.

Your officials for tonight.

Vogel officially sick and questionable.

LeBron will be a game-time decision.

Michael Beasley missed last Tuesday’s matchup, will he miss tonight’s?

What about Greg Oden?

Now we talk. First, Paul George is asked about LeBron’s situation.

Roy Hibbert then says this is an important game, regardless of who they’re playing.

Also, he talks about Chris Bosh and his long 2’s.

Will George take it easy on LeBron, because he’s injured?

It’s obvious that the tone has significantly changed since last Tuesday. Last week, many Pacers were selling this game as Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Today, not so much.
