Heat vs. Pacers Live TV: TNT
The Pacers are only down 2-1 in this best-of-seven series, and we have seen a number of teams that have lost Game 3 come back to win series in the past. However, this is a much different feeling at the moment, and to us, this series seems to be said and done with. Indiana led 2-1 last year when these two teams played Game 4 in this very same venue, and on that night, the Heat scored a 101-93 win. The series was never even remotely close again. It almost feels like what happened in Game 4 last year happened in Game 3 this year, and the end result will probably be the same: The Pacers aren’t going to win another game in this series. We don’t think that the oddsmakers adjusted nearly enough in this one, going from a pick ’em spread to a spread of -2, and that’s far too close to a pick for our tastes to want to back Indiana. It almost feels as though you would just be hoping for the Pacers to cover if you backed them on the NBA odds. You know that if you take the Heat, you’re getting the better of these two teams and a team that you can trust to either come straight out of the blocks with their hair on fire, or even come from behind if need be. Miami can win either an offensive game or a defensive game, and the formula has to be right for Indiana. Heck, the formula really wasn’t bad in Game 3 for the Pacers, and they were beaten by 18 points. This one might be almost as bad.
