The Indiana Pacers are joining the Indiana Blood Center to restock the center's blood supply.

Donors at seven Indiana Blood Center locations on Wednesday will receive a Pacers t-shirt while supplies last and will be entered into a drawing for two Legends Club tickets to Game 5 of the Pacers' playoff series with the Miami Heat Wednesday night.

The Indiana Blood Center says they fell 61 units short at hospitals Tuesday morning after the holiday weekend. Wednesday's blood drive will be held from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. with the winner of the Game 5 tickets notified by 7:30 p.m. for the 8:30 p.m. game.

The Indiana Blood Center has donor centers located in Indianapolis, Carmel, Columbus, Fishers, Greenwood, Muncie and Terre Haute.

The Pacers trail the Heat three games to one in the Eastern Conference Finals and must win Wednesday to stay alive in the playoffs.
