The Indiana Pacers edge the Miami Heat in seven games to move on to second round.

Of all the first-round series, the Indiana Pacer and Miami Heat will probably prove to be the most competitive and exciting. Sure enough, NBA 2K20 sure seems to think so too, predicting it as the only series to go the full length. In the end, the Pacers are expected to edge out the Heat in game seven.

You’re probably wondering what happened in game seven that resulted in the Heat scoring just 74 points. Well, for starters, they shot just 39 percent (26-86) from the field, including just 18 percent (6/34) from three-point range. Comparatively, the Pacers shot 38 percent from the field along with 38 percent from beyond the arc.

Really though, the Heat struggled offensively all series. The team had a field goal percentage of just .414 for the series, second-worst in the first round. Only the Rockets had a worse field goal percentage (.369) in the round. They were the worst in the league from three-point land, hitting just .285 percent from three.

In real life, this series is going to be a grind, but we’re used to that in the playoffs from these two teams who have quite a history between the.
