The Miami HEAT fell to the Indiana Pacers 90-84 Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The HEAT held a first half lead but were unable to maintain their production in the second half.

 

Impact Performance of the Night: Roy Hibbert was a force for the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night. He finished with 24 points and five rebounds. Hibbert was excellent for Indiana down the stretch. He hit a number of shots around the rim and drew fouls to get to the line. When Hibbert is scoring efficiently, as he did Tuesday when he shot 10-for-15, the Pacers reach a new level of effectiveness.

 

The Deciding Run: A pair of LeBron James free throws brought the HEAT to within two points at 74-72 with 7:20 remaining in the game. The Pacers proceeded to go on a 12-5 run to take a nine-point lead. Miami couldn’t hit their shots and the Pacers couldn’t miss theirs.

 

Play of the Game: During the Pacers’ run, the HEAT forced a miss from Paul George but couldn’t secure the rebound. Luis Scola grabbed the board and kicked it out to George in the corner. He knocked down his second three-point attempt of the possession, giving the Pacers a nine-point lead. Had the HEAT been able to grab the board, things may have been different.

 

Efficiency Rating: Offensive Efficiency: 91.5; Defensive Efficiency: 100.0

 

Trend to Watch: The HEAT have had a tough go of it from three-point range lately. It looked like the HEAT may have broken out of their slump on Sunday against the Pistons, but the shooting woes returned tonight. Against a defense as good as Indiana’s, when presented with open looks, you have to knock them down. Miami only went 4-of-21 from deep with many of their misses coming on wide open looks. If there’s something to be encouraged by it has to be Miami’s ability to create clean looks against the Pacers. There still isn’t much reason for concern when it comes to the HEAT’s shooting. It’ll come and go, but the HEAT have such good shooters that there will be more good nights than bad. With another game against Indiana next week, it’ll be interesting to see if the HEAT can turn things around in time for another stiff test.

 

The Takeaway: This game will be held up as a statement game, but in reality it’s just one in 82 game marathon. The Indiana Pacers are a very, very good basketball team. They have given the HEAT trouble in the past and likely will again. Such is the nature of the matchup. Miami did a lot of good things against the Pacers in the losing effort. For large stretches of the game the HEAT were able to dice the Pacers defense up. That’s not easy to do. Miami also forced a bunch of turnovers which helps offset any rebounding imbalance. Miami would gladly take the same shots they saw tonight again. What we can take away from tonight is that a Pacers-HEAT playoff series would be fun as both teams are among the NBA’s elite.

 

Notes: Dwyane Wade and LeBron James each scored 17 points. Chris Bosh added 12 points. Michael Beasley and Greg Oden were inactive.

As a fan, tough loss -_-. Too as a fan, it's nothing new to see the opposition go all out when facing the HEAT. If MIAMI hits a couple of threes here or a few more free throws there, different outcome; escpecially considering the horrid shooting from 3-land. No need to panic as of yet, MIAMI has another shot at them soon enough ;)...TEAM HEAT since '88!

Wade :  -18 during that game, he got some rest 

 

And if we are not going to play this kind of game then rest LeBron too, he is out of gas lately, he has to do almost everything (14 rebounds vs 19 for the rest of the team) 

 

Of course people will point out his horrible end but the guy played the entire 2nd half after shutdown Paul George the first quarter (0 pt, 0 rbd and 0 assist)

 

Stop the small lineup with Battier and UD on West, it's not working ! Bosh needs to play at the 4 with a true center not Birdman he is better with the 2nd unit ! We dont even know what Greg Oden will provide so we need another center 

 

we got Joel Anthony + Mario Chalmers (who is Free Agent at the end of this year) + 1st pick from the Sixers

 

i am sure Roger Mason Jr could fit Rio's role hands down ! He cant do worse LOL

I agree with Maroko about the lineup, why not start Haslem against teams like pacers, pistons or the nets & use the smaller lineup with other teams. I know the advantages of small lineup & King james @ the 4 spot & spoelstra is going back & forth but Haslem has been much more effective against West & the pacers. Is he healthy enough to be in the starting lineup & when will Oden be ready?

Not the best game for the Miami Heat, but it's just one. The Heat need to get their offensive rebounding and three's improved to be their best team possible. Those are their only weaknesses stat-wise. Obviously greatness will be seen in the future by the Champions! #LetsGoHeat

the only headlines they(idiots) come up with without breaking down the truth.

 

1. James shuts down paul george to 0 pts, 0 rebs, 0 asts 2nd half.

2. wade -18 kills the flow and outplayed by stephenSON.

3. they gassed out James on the other side no rests and limit him to 15 shots when we know damn well he'd been averaging 30 ppg on them in the playoffs.

 

ahh just one commandment: "Though shall not over rely on Jesus and those 3's that are suspect and put pressure instead on their defense using aggressiveness from King.

could have turn out another way if we manage a better second half , Pacers did play a good game though but we sure didn't play to our standard, it wasn't a thing of beauty down the stretch, we have to be efficient thought-out the game and keep improving on the boards.

But Wade didn't play that bad. He missed two lay ups earlier in the game, was really passive throughout the game, but through the eye test played decent defense and wasn't turning the ball over or missing many free throws. Not LBJ's fault either, though he didn't have a great game. Our three point shooting was pathetic, and our offensive sets were FAR too stagnant, no weak side movement and the Pacers just shelled the paint. I blame it more on Spo for not calling more plays; against 90% of the teams, our system and a simple screen and roll is enough, but against an elite defense like the Pacers with Hibbert who's being treated like god by the refs, it's not enough.They are not gonna over help on defense, they are going to let people challenge Hibbs, and they will let Wade and James shoot open shots(long, inefficient shots).

Energy really decided this game. Heat came out completely flat in the second half and didn't even look like improving. I said it before the game in the preview topic and it was exactly like that. This team just relaxes too much on certain nights to really win a game and even then they come close at the last minutes. They've been doing it ever since the big 3 joined together.

 

They will have to do something about Wade and especialy Lebron going hero mode against the Pacers. Heat's offense becomes completely stagnant and it only plays into Pacers' hands.
