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 don’t,” George said. “I mean, we know how well we play at home. We’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. That’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.”
