This Pacers couldn't get over the hump in Game 1, as James scored two layups in the last 10 seconds as they fell in overtime. But when they look back, the Pacers had many opportunities to win the game in regulation. They turned it over 20 times and that may have been partially due to inexperience. Paul George had a very good opener with 27 points, but also had six turnovers and allowed James to drive to the basketball without Roy Hibbert (benched for some reason) to patrol the paint. Miami also struggled with turnovers in the opener, as they had 20, but the good news is the Dwyane Wade played 41 minutes with a sore knee and scored 19 points. Ray Allen had a terrible game, missing seven of his shots from the field and a key free throw late in the game. Expect Allen to bounce back and the Heat to play a better game offensively. The Pacers' young backcourt of Lance Stephenson and George Hill also struggled shooting 4-of-19 overall. Expect them to improve in Game 2 and this game to go over the total.
