The enthusiasm of the NBA playoffs on Thursday tips off at 7PM Eastern Time as the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers will battle in game three. The Pacers will be the home team. The teams met twice in Indiana on the 2011-12 campaign with each team winning and covering the spread one time. On March 26th Indiana enjoyed a 105-90 home win against the Heat as a +3 ½ point underdog. The big three were all in the lineup for Miami in the loss. It was a good shooting night for Indiana as the club hit on 45.7% from the floor and 10 of 18 from three. Danny Granger had 25 points in victory. The Miami Heat was just 19-16 on the road this season. They went 1-1 in the opening round series against the New York Knicks in their two road games. Miami took a huge blow to their championship hopes as Chris Bosh left game one with an abdominal injury. The injury forced Bosh to miss game two and he could miss significant time in the Heat postseason run.

The two clubs met twice this regular season in San Antonio with each team winning and covering the pointspread once.
