Little at stake in Heat-Pacers regular-season finale

The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers are unlikely to give away any secrets -- if any are left -- when they go head-to-head in a meaningless playoff preview in each team's regular-season finale Friday afternoon near Orlando.

The Heat (44-28) and Pacers (44-28) will take the court tied for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, with the winner earning the No. 4 playoff seed and the loser getting No. 5.

In previous years, landing fourth would mean home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. But with all playoff games slated for one of three neutral courts at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando this year, no such advantage exists.
