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.

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.

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.
