NBA Basketball : Indiana Pacers VS Miami Heat NBA Basketball play on Tuesday, May 22,2012.

The Indiana Pacers :

The Indiana Pacers, who have won 16 of their last 20 games dating back to April 1, head into Miami's AmericanAirlines Arena riding a seven-game road winning streak. Indiana's last road loss came to the San Antonio Spurs back on March 31. The Pacers would steal home-court advantage and put all kinds of pressure on the defending Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat if they can extend their road win streak to eight games.Prior to the start of Game 1, LeBron James will be presented with the 2012 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. Two years ago, when he was still a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, James was presented with the 2010 MVP trophy before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Boston Celtics spoiled James' MVP trophy presentation that night by beating the Cavaliers, 104-86, and stealing home-court advantage. Boston went on to win that series.
