If you are the Indiana Pacers, how can you not be feeling good about yourselves right now?

Not only have you stolen home-court advantage with a gut-check win in Game 2 on Friday night, but more importantly you managed to come up with an answer to the magic that is LeBron James.

James, who had a triple-double in Game 1 not to mention the winning bucket at the buzzer in overtime, came back with a 36-point effort in Game 2.

Through the bulk of the fourth he was so dominant, Reggie Miller was giving him Superman status saying the Pacers were going to have to find some Kryptonite if they had any hope of dealing with James down the stretch.

Turned out David West had some of that Kryptonite on him as in the final 30 seconds his active hands forced James into two giveaways helping the Pacers hold on for a 97-93 win.
