Noblesville, Indiana -- During a musical interlude early in his set Friday night, Bob Dylan faced the audience and playfully shook his shoulders, prompting a gleeful eruption from the thousand who had gathered at the Klipsch Center, an outdoor venue carved out of fields about a half hour north of Indianapolis. It was the first and only time the musical legend would interact with the crowd. When Dylan takes the stage these days, he doesn't speak, doesn't gesture and certainly doesn't banter.

MIAMI  - The previous two series for the Miami Heat were all about matching the opponent's physical play. That hasn't been the case against the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. The Heat doesn't expect it to happen the rest of the series, either. "It's a lot less physical," guard Mario Chalmers said. "I'll say that. I feel like Eastern Conference basketball is a lot more physical than Western Conference basketball. When you go against teams like Chicago or Indiana, they're two physical teams.

MIAMI - This started way before Monday's tipoff. LeBron James wanted to make sure his Miami Heat teammates were locked in long before they took the court for pregame warmups. So he spoke to each one after the team's morning shoot-around. No details of the discussion were disclosed but one thing was certain. They listened. After being cast as a one-man team most of the series, the Heat put together a collective effort in defeating the Indiana Pacers, 99-76, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

1. It's championship or bust for LeBron James. The same player who sat on a stage and proclaimed, “Not one, not two, not three ... ” when talking about the titles he would win with the Heat will not accept falling one step short of reaching the Finals. It doesn't calculate with the game's best player. So if James needs to score 45 points, grab 12 rebounds and distribute eight assists while playing the entire game and conducting the timeout huddles, he will. 2. The Birdman cometh back.

INDIANAPOLIS - With their season hanging in the balance, the Pacers say they understand changes have to be made if they're to win two straight and advance to the NBA Finals. They can't let LeBron James put together another performance like the one he had Thursday, when the league most valuable player scored 16 of his game-high 30 points in the third quarter. They can't allow physical play to get under their skin, and without fail, they say they can't play as passively as they think they did Thursday.

MIAMI -- This was not the script, couldn't have been the script. Not with Dwyane Wade failing to score his second basket until midway through the fourth quarter, not with LeBron James converting his first free throw late in the fourth. But with James taking control of the script in the third quarter, the latest chapter of the Heat's Big Three experience is down to this: Miami now is one victory from its third consecutive appearance in the NBA Finals. Moving to a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals with Thursday's 90-79 victory over the Indiana Pacers at AmericanAirlines Arena, the Heat can close out the series Saturday at Indianapolis.

MIAMI - It was only five days ago that Miami Heat center Chris Bosh said he was done discussing anything related to the player he matched up against in the Eastern Conference finals. No more would Bosh answer any more questions about Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert. But with the series tied 2-2 entering Thursday's Game 5, Bosh has been left with no choice. All the talk centers on how Hibbert has dominated the Heat, especially on offense. He is averaging 22.7 points and 12 rebounds and hardly resembling the player known more for defense.
