MIAMI (AP) - For as intense and down-to-the-wire as Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals was, the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat shared the same thought on Thursday.
In their minds, Game 2 will be better.
Sure, Wednesday's 103-102 Heat series-opening win in overtime, with LeBron James scoring the game-winner on a layup as time expired, was great theater. But the teams combined for 41 turnovers, and play was at times choppy thanks in part to 58 personal fouls called in the game's 53 minutes.
Heat center Chris Bosh says the Heat will ``play a lot better'' in Game 2. As for the Pacers, they say they're moving on from the questionable decision to not have Roy Hibbert on the floor to defend the rim on the final play of Game 1.
