Pacers fans upbeat after home court drubbing
With Miami's dominating 114-96 win over Indiana Sunday night, the Heat now holds a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. Some Pacers fans are getting a little concerned.
Sunday's game provided a disappointing end to an epic sports day in Indianapolis. After one of the fastest Indy 500 races ever, Pacers fans hoped to bring that momentum to Bankers Life Fieldhouse for Game 3 against the Heat. But it just didn't happen.
A lot of people took part in the "double-header" Sunday. They went to the Indy 500 during the afternoon, then hustled downtown to cheer on the Pacers.
But many Pacers fans who were let down when their team fell far behind the Heat early, and never caught up, still hold out hope their team can turn around and beat the Heat.
"It's not what I expected," said Rick Crain. "I thought it would turn out better. Don't worry about it. We are coming back Tuesday. Absolutely."
Game 4 of this series is back at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday. Tip-off is at 8:30 p.m. again.
Derek Brown will be there. "We got one at home from Miami, so they got one here," he said. "We are alright."
