As has been the case through a majority of this series, the Indiana Pacers have held a lengthy advantage against the Miami Heat. The Pacers got big first quarters from Roy Hibbert and Paul George to help them, but the Pacers have turnovers (nine) and missed layups (around four) standing right behind them. The Pacers have done a tremendous job limiting the Heat's effectiveness however, limiting them to 42.5% shooting and forcing six turnovers, the highest Miami has committed in the last two games.
Lance Stephenson found early foul trouble as the Pacers back court has been nonexistent. Indiana has three double digit scorers, led by George with 15 on 6-9 shooting, Hibbert with 14, and West with 10. LeBron James is the only Heat player in double figures with 11, but has three turnovers. Indiana holds a slight rebounding edge, but have come up with some timely boards. Dwyane Wade is 1-6 with five points and Chris Bosh seven on 3-6 shooting.
