Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers takes place in the NBA Playoffs Game 6 Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night with the Pacers on the brink unless they can claim a win and tie the series to take things to a decisive Game 7. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Heat managed to claim a vital win in Game 5 to move 3-2 ahead in the series and move to within just one win of claiming another Eastern Conference title. They now have to win just one of the final two games of the series to make sure they appear in the NBA Championship Game again.
However, the Pacers have so far pushed Miami all the way and no one will expect tonight to be any different. With home advantage the Pacers will be hoping to claim the win that can extend the series to a winner takes all Game 7, which would take place in Miami.
Indiana have already been able to upset the Heat on the road in Game 2, and if they can win through tonight they will go all out to replicate that result to surprise everyone and knock out LeBron James and co.
The Heat will want to try their best to continue where they left off in Game 5, where they ended the Game in command to claim one of the most comfortable wins of an extremely tight series.
LeBron James no doubt will have a lot of input in deciding whether things will end tonight or go through to a Game 7. He has played every bit the league MVP in this series, and has led his team from the front, driving his team to wins when their backs were against the wall.
The Pacers have been excellent at home all through the regular season, and are 7-1 at the Fieldhouse during the Playoffs. However, their only loss did indeed come against Miami in Game 3. They will need to avoid a second home loss if they are to extend this series and take it all the way to the wire.
