6 Things to Watch out for During Indiana Pacers' Final Games
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
David West, Lance Stephenson and Roy Hibbert celebrate Indy's 94-83 win over the Boston Celtics on March 11 to snap a four-game losing streak.

The upcoming final games will test the mettle of the Indiana Pacers.

A team which was projected to win roughly 70 games has hardly looked like one. Prior to its 94-83 win over the Boston Celtics on March 11, Indiana uncharacteristically lost four games in a row.  

The Miami Heat were also on a bit of a slide, but that doesn't give the Pacers any reason to be complacent. With a weak Eastern Conference this season, Indiana and Miami are destined to meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The Pacers just cannot allow the Heat to snag the No. 1 seed in the East. Should these two teams be in a collision course for the Eastern Conference Finals, history would not be on the side of Indiana. Out of a total of 114 Game 7s in the history of the NBA, the road team has won just 23 times. That's a winning percentage of around 20 percent. 

The Pacers are very much capable of beating the Heat or any other contender on the road in a Game 7. However, home-court advantage throughout the postseason is vital for Indy's title aspirations. 

That being said, every shot, pass, rebound and whatever game-saving play from here on out matters big time.
