This has been a zigzag series since the Heat won game number one. The Pacers bounced back from defeat with a 97-93 road victory at Miami to notch the series at 1-1. In game three the Heat bounced back from their loss and pounded the Indiana Pacers by a 114-96 and easily covered the spread as a -2 point betting favorite. In game four Indiana was left for dead by most critics as the discussion for most of Tuesday afternoon came from a possible Miami and San Antonio NBA Finals series. Well Indiana put that talk to rest after evening this best of seven series with a 99-92 victory on their home court as a +3 point underdog. After shooting terribly in game three at 39.7% the Indiana Pacers rebounded in game four by connecting on 50% from the field. The Pacers got good production from their five starters as each player scored in double digits. The Pacers bench as like they did for the regular season and playoffs offer very little on the scoreboard for the Indiana Pacers. Center Roy Hibbert was more efficient in game four as the Pacers big man made 10 of 16 from the floor which was a significant improvement from game three. Indiana is getting no respect from the critics but has really given the Heat problems in both last year’s playoff series and their series in 2013. None of the Heat’s starting five was able to make at least 50% of their shots. Ray Allen had difficulty hitting shots in game four by making just 4 of his 13 shots off the bench.
