Who wins East -- Heat or Pacers?
There's not much going on in the Eastern Conference outside of the Heat and Pacers, which made Tuesday night's game in Indiana a must-watch. And it didn't disappoint; the home team won 90-84. This shouldn't surprise; Pacers came close to knocking off the Heat in last season's playoffs, and the way they're playing this season, it's not clear that Miami would have the home-court advantage this time around. Paul George might even be able to challenge LeBron James' MVP hegemony -- although, as in all things NBA pre-New Year's Day, it's still quite early.
