Shane Battier's Airball Sums Up Miami's Start

As Game 6 gets underway between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat, "Gold Swagger" is out in full effect at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers opened the game on a 10-2 run, with all five field goals coming inside the paint. With Miami starting LeBron James at power forward and Ronny Turiaf at center, it makes sense that Indiana would plan to attack the paint with David West and Roy Hibbert. So far, so good: The Pacers have hoisted six shots, five of them have gone in.

As for the Heat, they aren't shooting as well.
