10:55 AM ET 05.25 | Despite the Celtics' strong desire to put the matter behind them, Doc Rivers' immediate future with the club has still not been decided. There is still the possibility -- stress possibility -- Rivers will choose to walk away from his contract to coach the Celts. A source close to the situation, however, insists it remains far more likely he will return. The word as expressed to us is that it is "90-10" that Rivers will continue on a contract that has three years and $21 million remaining. If he leaves the Celtics, it will not be with the intent of coaching another team.

Why are there no stories about the game last night? Anyways, the Pacers have proven everybody wrong. They could have easily been up 2-0. The Pacers own the Heat this year. The Heat have no answer to the Pacers big frontline. If the Pacers can continue to cut down their turnovers then they have a great chance of upsetting the champion. They will not be intimidated just like last year.

Because when Indy gets called for tecs, flagrants and expulsions for looking at LBJ and wade, while the heat are allowed to take free shots at Indy players heads, fans are tired of the collusion that is going on between stern and the networks and the heat......How did wade NOT get called for that forearm shiver on Stephenson late?

Yuup, that was intentional even though cheap shot DWade pretended to be accidental. The league should give him a 1 game suspension but they'll look the other way because it's the Heat. The Heat should be taught a lesson that they cannot always get away w/ these kinds of cheap shot. Norris Cole punched West in the balls and he didn't get tossed out or suspended. Terry did that 1 time and he got suspended...smh

Damn good point!!! I said last week, that the Pacers have to play the Heat rough (not dirty)!!!! They can't allow Wade and James to own the lane and if James comes down the lane for one of his dunks, foul him hard!!! No easy dunks allowed!!!! I really think in the first two games, the Pacers have accomplished that somewhat, but not enough. They have to keep "frustrating", the Heat and maybe Wade and James will lose their cool!!!

If I was Vogel, I would let Stephenson and Hansborough out there as bull dogs. Their ONLY job is to bully the Heat with physical play. I don't care if they get tossed or get 6 fouls in 10 minutes. Put some hurt out there. Let Wade know every time he pump fakes, he's going to hit so hard that he will think 3 times again.
And somebody needs to put a knee in Shane Battier;s nuts. Just because you're from Duke and can speak like a professional doesn't mean that yo cannot be dirty. Will I want a Shane Battier on my team? Sure. But is he dirty? absolutely he is!
Send a bench player to put a foot under him when he tries his ugly looking 3 pointer next time.
