Top 10 takeaways from Pacers-Heat Game Two

10) It must be nice to play on the Heat, since your every missed shot and failure is blamed on LeBron James

9) Indy won on the road in a game where they missed 24 of 29 from the field, because both of these teams want to end basketball as we know it

8) So many people are now interested in telling you how important Chris Bosh is, after telling you for years that he's gutless and sucky

7) If you were surprised by James missing free throws late, you haven't been paying any real attention to his career since, well, high school

6) We'd say something nice about the Pacers' defense here, but it's not allowed by the rules of NBA analysis, in which everything is about LeBron

5) Dwyane Wade is very, very good at arguing with the refs during a play and giving up a 4-on-5 possession

4) The Pacers have a big advantage in the pivot with Roy Hibbert with Bosh out, so Hibbert took... six shots all night

3) Danny Granger said that the Pacers never felt as if they were the underdog, which means that Danny Granger might not have a firm grasp on reality

2) It says something substantial that this Heat team really could use Zydrunas Ilgauskas

1) The Heat's struggles are really opening the door for the eventual Sixers' win of the Eastern Conference playoffs, where they will be presented with a trophy in the form of a giant asterisk

Asterisks are fun. Patriots fans have been saying for years that the Giants win in 2008 was a total fluke and the Patriots win that game at least 19 times out of 20.

The fact that they're almost certainly right about that hasn't made listening to them cry about it one bit less fun.
