Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers: Six Best Places to Watch the Game

Laine Doss
Miami Heat go after the Indiana Pacers again tonight.
Wednesday evening's playoff game was a true nail-biter. With the clock ticking down in overtime, LeBron James won the game for the Miami Heat with two seconds on the clock!

That was just game one!

Tonight at 8:30 p.m. the Heat face the Pacers for another white-knuckle game. Tickets are going for astronomical prices and you have an entire three-day weekend of partying. You've got to budget your money somewhere, so may we suggest skipping the AAA (and the $40 parking), and heading out to one of these great places instead?

So, get out your best white T-shirt (gotta show solidarity), grab a few friends, and watch the game at one of these joints:

Eat Like the Heat at Blackbird Ordinary
Want to eat like the Heat? Chef Michael Jacobs is the official food service provider for the Heat and he's at Blackbird Ordinary tonight for his Hidden Kitchen pop-up.

He's serving up street-food-style items like veggie tacos, slow roasted pulled pork Bahn Mi, brisket truffle mac and cheese and more (including a special "eat like the Heat" dish, which is a little something that he whipped up for the team before the game). Could be the DWade wrap, or the Norris Cole turkey meatball. You have to go there to find out. All food is $5 per serving and you can munch out while watching the game on the huge projection screen on the outside patio. And, of course, the cocktails are some of the best in the city. Starts at 5 p.m.

Wade is only 32. But the way he has played throughout his career has really messed up his body. Specifically his knees. Compared other aging SG like Ray Allen, Kobe and Carter they shot way more instead of constantly driving And slashing. Kobe adjusted by working his shot and so did Carter. And Ray Allen obviously has always had it. But wade completely took out the 3 to be more efficient. Not really good for longevity. But it works for him i guess although I want to see him play longer.


What about Sports Grill and Homefield in Kendall? Homefield has a projector...

I don't think Blackbird has enough TV's to watch the game. they might have one or two but not enough to make this list.

Lebron did not dunk the ball and it was not 20 seconds left on the clock. It was 2 seconds and change and Lebron made a lay up. Nice reporting dude...
