The Indiana Pacers played from behind all night, but despite Chris Bosh scoring the opening eight points of the game and the Pacers never looking involved, the Pacers trailed by just five at halftime. But the Miami Heat came out with a purpose in the third quarter to outscore Indiana 31-20. The Pacers made a late push, but Dwyane Wade flops prevented Indiana from climbing any closer than nine. The Pacers fall to the brink of elimination down 1-3.
Paul George led the Pacers with 23 points with David West scoring 20, but three quarters of no show basketball one point combined between Lance Stephenson and Roy Hibbert did them no favors. Stephenson had six in the fourth. Luis Scola had another good game with 12 points on 6-8 shooting. LeBron James had 32 and Chris Bosh had 25 for the Heat.
