my bad. After reading your post I googled and found a more detalied summary page from NBA.com. It did seem kinda odd to me that they use division record before conference record, even if the teams were not in the same division.
Anyway, that means that Indiana holds the tiebreaker over Miami, since both teams won their division, split their season series, and the Pacers have the best conference record.
Miami better try against the Wiz, if they want first place. Because if the Heat lose, all Indy has to do is beat Orlando.
