The Miami Heat are up 3-2 in their semi finals series versus the Pacers but heading into Game 6, Miami will be a bit thin in the front court.
Miami will be without Udonis Haslem and Dexter Pittman with both serving suspensions and not to mention will continue to be without Chris Bosh who is out of action due to an abdominal injury. And although Miami should be able to dispatch the Pacers in this series, Bosh might be back on the court for Miami sooner than later.
Originally, Bosh was listed as being out of action indefinitely, but according to ESPN, he is feeling much better and could be back on the court during Miami's playoff run.
"I do have a chance to play again. That's the light at the end of the tunnel for me. That keeps me going every day."
"I've come a far way in a week," Bosh said. "I was kind of nervous initially, but it wasn't the worst news I could have gotten. I just have to keep believing and stay mentally strong. I think I...

Miami Heat would blowout the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinals, and with a less than a minute remaining in the game, Pittman gives Stephenson a vicious elbow.

The NBA playoffs have been quite crazy this season, with former champions getting eliminated with ease (Dallas, the Lakers) and others facing off in what can best be classified as brawls. One such case of physical play has been the series between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat. The Pacers initiated some of the extra antics with trash talking and on-the-court confrontations...
When Pau Gasol arrived in Los Angeles five years ago, he was the missing link for the desperately rebuilding Lakers. His passing, vision, skill and selflessness fit seamlessly into Phil Jackson's triangle offense, and suddenly the Lakers were back to being the Lakers feared, loathed and on their way to three straight NBA Finals appearances and back-to-back titles.
The Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers Game 5 has been full of antics.
Whether it be Lance Stevenson giving Miami the choke sign, Juwan Howard taking exception to Lance's act, Danny Granger's tough guy act to the plenty of hard fouls in Game 5.
But perhaps this could have been the proverbial cherry on top of the cake for this series.
