The Indiana Pacers' starters will be well rested for Friday's upcoming showdown against the Miami Heat.

First things first.

Chris Copeland's go-ahead floater with 1.2 seconds remaining lifted the Pacers to a 104-102 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

Head coach Frank Vogel announced during Wednesday's shootaround that he would sit his entire starting five against the NBA-worst Bucks.

Indiana had dropped eight of its last 11 coming in.

Milwaukee's Khris Middleton was fouled while attempting a potentially game- tying 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left and sunk all three bonus shots to knot the game at 102-102.

Following a timeout, Copeland got the ball at the top of the arc, drove down the right side of the lane and got his floater to drop to put Indiana in front.
