Paul George Says Heat Can’t Beat Pacers Without Homecourt Advantage

by January 17, 2014

The Eastern Conference Finals can’t get here soon enough. When asked about a potential (and highly-anticipated) clash with the defending champion Miami Heat in the postseason, Paul George said he can’t envision the Indiana Pacers losing if they have homecourt advantage. Per Jim Rome (via SI):

“We donโ€™t,” George said. “I mean, we know how well we play at home. Weโ€™re one of the best teams in the postseason last year defending our home court. We just know how big home-court advantage is when it comes down to postseason. Thatโ€™s one of our main goals this year is to lock up the first seed so we can have the opportunity to play at home throughout the whole playoffs.”
