INDIANAPOLIS -- The Miami Heat may have the best record in the Eastern Conference, but the Indiana Pacers proved again they don't have any fear of the defending NBA champions. The Pacers beat the Heat for the second time this season, 102-89, in front of a sellout crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday. "Really proud of our guys for playing with great intensity and focus for 48 minutes," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "They are a great team and you have to play great to beat them." The Pacers have won 13 straight at home, their longest streak since the 2002-03 season. Pacers forward David West set the tempo for his team by scoring 30 points and grabbing seven rebounds. Paul George had 15 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Pacers, and Lance Stephenson added 15 points. The Pacers aren't sugarcoating the win. They didn't look at Friday's victory as just any other victory. They know it means a lot because of whom they beat and...

LeBron took less money to go to the Miami Heat for a chance to play with Dwyane...

David West talks after Pacers beat Heat.
There are lot of things to be mad at in the world. Not being able to watch the Super Bowl because you have to work and make hundreds of thousands of dollars while doing it isn’t one of those things to complain about. Apparently LeBron James didn’t get that memo, [...]
LeBron James is more worried about winning than being the NBA's highest-paid player. At least that's what he told reporters in Indianapolis after a shootaround in preparation for Friday night's game against the Pacers. When James left Cleveland for Miami in 2010, he took less money in order to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in hopes of winning a title, which...

James will ultimately make the call to return – just like he made it to leave – rest assured that the most important voices in his ear will be partial...
If he’s not worried then why justify it?
