06:29 PM ET 05.19 | The series will come down to one thing: can the Pacers take LeBron James out of the series? If the Pacers contain James and neutralize him, then they match up incredibly well against the Heat. Miami has struggled inside all season and the Pacers present a beefy, physical gameplan when it comes to whose bigs can out-rebound the other teams. Amazingly enough, with the Big 3 in town, the Heat have gotten by with a small-ball mentality and so far it's worked. But the Pacers aren't built like the Chicago Bulls or Milwaukee Bucks and can beat up the Heat all over the court with guys like Roy Hibbert and David West. But Paul George will be the biggest name to watch in the series as he'll be drawing heavy minutes defending LeBron James and working on making him as little a factor as possible.

Short answer: No.Paul is a stud. But, Bron is a small forward, with point guard skills, in a power forward's body.They can only hope to slow him down.

Nope. LeBron is living up to the Superstar force he was predicted to be a long time ago.

I'd still rather the Spurs win the title but don't see anyone taking from Miami this season!

I would double-team Lebron every single time he touches the ball and make someone else beat me. If wade isn't 100% and or Bosh have a off night, they there is a chance to win.

Otherwise this series is over in 5.

No one player will stop James. George locking up with James will hamper his offensive production. They will have to run multiple guys at him with the universal idea of just stay in front and if you are going to foul, do so with some force. James is not a great free throw shooter, put him on the line but they can not afford for either starting big man to get into early foul trouble.
