Indiana Pacers Strike First Blood in Game 1 Over the Heat

Well, that was rough.

The Miami Heat dropped Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Indiana Pacers 107-96 in a game in which Miami never even led.

It was a swift and rough kick right to the pills from the get-go and featured one of the most frustrating performances by the Heat since, well... since Game 4 of the Brooklyn series.

Care to relive it? Probably not! But let's delve deeper into the poop canal anyway to figure out what went wrong and what needs to happen to fix it.
