Miami Heat Steals Home-Court Advantage Back From the Pacers

After last week's loss to the Pacers, most people assumed the race for the first seed was over. Many predicted it would be very likely the Heat would just turtle into some sort of pre-playoff cocoon, content with the second seed in the East. Last Wednesday's loss to the Pacers dropped the Heat to two games back in the loss column, with the tiebreaker in the Pacers' favor, making leapfrogging them with less than a dozen games improbable, if not damn near impossible.

And now you're all in big, big trouble. Apparently, Zombieland taught the Indiana Pacers nothing. You always double-tap.

Now, for the first time all year, the Pacers' name sits below the Heat's in the conference standings, and the Pacers seem mad butt hurt about it.

Group therapy! All the butt hurts!!Shower Miami with an oasis of your golden tears!

While it means little if the Miami Heat doesn't continue to build on the week's momentum heading into the playoffs, it's still fun to taste those Pacers tears. Because Indiana Pacers tears taste like Skittles and Starbursts having sex in your mouth while Gloria Estefan's "Conga" plays.
