Tonight the Miami Heat make their way to Bankers Field House in Indiana to take on the Pacers. The Heat are on fire (no pun intended) after winning three road games in a row by an average of 18.3 points. Indiana, on the other hand, is on a 3 game losing streak and slowly reeling. While they’re still 5th in the East, they are struggling and will have a tough time hanging with the Heat.
The last time these two teams played each other was on January 4th and Miami embarrassed Indiana 118-83 in Miami. LeBron almost had a triple-double with 33 points, 13 assists, and 8 rebounds. This game should not be much different considering the Heat are playing great basketball and are tired for the best start in franchise history.
Although Miami is favored, they need to watch out for Roy Hibbert. He could have been an All-Star and hits the boards hard. Indiana has a very solid all around team with everyone in the starting lineup averaging double figures. If Miami can keep Danny Granger and David West from scoring and grab some rebounds, they will be fine. Hope fully the fatigue of three games in three nights will not affect them. Tune in tonight at 7 for the game and check AllUCanHeat.com after for some post-game analysis.
