Pacers Final Score: Pacers beat Heat 87-77

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers use a big third quarter to beat the Heat in Indianapolis.

After heading into the locker room tied at 42, the Indiana Pacers put together a big third quarter, building upon their first half defense to win 25-15. They would go on to build a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter, and despite not hitting a field goal in the final four and a half minutes, would ride their defense to the victory. The game really turned in Indiana's favor when they held Miami to just six points in the final eight minutes of the third quarter.

Paul George had a monster second half, finishing with 29 points and 11 rebounds. Lance Stephenson was right there with George in the second half, scoring 13 points as well. David West pitched in with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Roy Hibbert had just six, but pulled down 14 boards. The bench was huge tonight, D.J. Augustin played a brilliant game, finishing with eight assists. Dwyane Wade scored 23 in the first half, but was held scoreless in the third, scoring just seven in the final half. LeBron James had 22 & 10.
