The Miami Heat has given home court advantage to the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers beat the Heat in their own house (minus Chris Bosh who suffered a strain abdomen in game 1) 78-75. One play in particular that people are examining, is this flagrant foul on Darren Collison courtesy of Dwyane Wade.
“I heard they wanted to be like the Dallas Mavericks, in a sense,” Wade said about an apparent reference to Pacers coach Frank Vogel using last year’s Mavs team, which beat the Heat in Miami for the title, as motivation for Indiana. “I saw their little celebration at the end of (Game 2). I don’t know if they didn’t expect to win, but every night we go out on the court, we expect to win.”
“They say their identity, they say they want to be like Dallas,” Wade said. “So they celebrated like Dallas, I guess.”
