American Airlines arena off the coast of South Beach is the destination of tonight's game 2 expected thriller especially after the1 we saw just 48 hours ago under the same roof in game 1 where Miami turned up the heat in a 103-102 overtime win vs Indy led by King James' game winning layup w/2 seconds remaining. What to expect in tonight's rematch? Can the Pacers repeat history and cool off the Heat as they did in game dos of last year's postseason Eastern Conference semis? Thoughts on Dwight Howard's future possibly with a new team, Roy Hibbert's comments on Shane Battier's 'dirty' play and comments of legendary & arguably the league's coaching G.O.A.T. who'd pass up on MJ for Bill Russell with both in their prime had he started a team today. All of this and more tonight on Tate's Take!!!

The defending world champions Miami Heat who swept Milwaukee in the 1st round & defeated Chicago in all games but the 1st in round 2 has had nearly an entire week & plenty of time to sit and wait on the arrival of the traveling Indiana Pacers tonight @ American Airlines Arena tipping of @ 8:30pm est. on TNT. Indy comes in to South Beach with a chip on their shoulders especially after last year's postseason loss to the "red-hot" M-I-A following the elimination to the Atlanta Hawks in round uno in addition to a 4-2 series defeat that sent Carmelo Anthony (the league's scoring champion) home earlier than expected in 6 games. Will the REST turn into RUST for the defending champs after so much time off? What is the latest update to Heat guard Dawyne Wade & how will it effect the team vs a 'very defensive' opponent? Do we expect Miami to overlook Chicago as it seems they did in G1? Who are the X-Factors, key players, objectives and is anyone giving Indy a 'real' chance in this series especially for the 1st 2 games off the Eastern Coast? These questions answered tonight on Tate's Take!!!
