West: No Advantage With Bosh Sidelined
The Pacers maintained Monday that Heat power forward Chris Bosh’s abdominal injury, which likely will sideline him the rest of this series, doesn’t put them a distinct advantage heading into Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series Tuesday night.
“We just can’t think that’s going to give us some sort of one-up,” Pacers power forward David West said before the team’s practice at AmericanAirlines Arena. “When you’ve got two guys like D-Wade and LeBron, I just don’t think that would be the smart thing to do.”
(Pacers coach Frank) Vogel said the Pacers’ plan “won’t change dramatically” with Bosh absent. He added that the Pacers prepared before the series started for LeBron James to play some power forward.
