Indiana Pacers vs -3 Miami Heat – Racap, Odds, and Futures

When the Pacers beat the Heat 94-84 on December 10th, there was much fanfare for a team that took last year’s Champions to a pivotal game 7 in their Eastern Conference Championship series. And with a 76-71 lead going into the fourth quarter on South Beach, it looked like the Pacers were about to win their second game of the season series between the two squads.

Instead, the Heat were able to rally in the fourth quarter and outscore the Pacers 26-18 for a final score of 97-94. The Heat were cold all game long, but it was the Pacers that slowed things down in the final quarter, which resulted in just their fifth loss on the season. The biggest points for the Heat were three-pointers from Ray Allen and Chris Bosh, who scored just 31-seconds apart in the closing minutes.

Although LeBron James got into a bit of scuffle with teammate Mario Chalmers, he was able to remain calm and finish the game with 24 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists. For the Pacers, Paul George was able to meet the same production as James, as he put in 25 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists of his own. Dwayne Wade was the high scorer for the Heat, as he put down 32 big ones.

Going back to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Heat and Pacers have now exchanged wins and losses in nine straight games. These two teams look primed and prepared atop the East and on a crash course to once again meet with a spot in the Finals on the line. However, if the Pacers can keep up the pace they have been on (20-5), it could be them with home court advantage this time around.

Despite the loss, the Pacers will be excited to know that Danny Granger is likely to practice on Thursday and could return to the lineup this week. He’ll be a huge addition to have the next time these teams meet.
