On the season the Heat are 52-41 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 47-43-3 and the Pacers are at 52-43 and they have an Over/Under record of 46-47-2.

This season the Pacers are 36-11 at home and the Heat are 33-12 on the road.

The Pacers only got 5 points from their bench in Game 2, but every starter scored in double figures led by Roy Hibbert, who went for 29 points. Hibbert also grabbed 10 boards in the game with 6 offensive rebounds and the Heat need to defend him better in the paint.

Paul George had another good game in Game 2 with 22 points on 9/16 shooting. The Heat have to keep him and Hibbert from getting easy buckets inside and force them into taking tougher shots.

James had 36 points on 14/20 shooting in Game 2 and played great even though the late turnovers really hurt. The other 2 of the Big 3 on Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh only combined for 31 points and each shot 6/14 from the floor. James needs more help from these guys, especially in the scoring department. [ad-6571516]

Indiana is 6-0 at home in these playoffs winning by an average of 14 ppg, but the Heat have also yet to lose on the road (6-0) in this post-season.

The Pacers are great at defending the 3-pointer and have really showed that in this series. Shane Battier and Ray Allen are a combined 1/12 in this series beyond the 3-pt arc.

In some betting trends for this Eastern Conference playoff match up the Heat are 22-6 ATS in their last 28 road games. 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss, and they have an Over record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Pacers are -0 ATS in their last 6 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall, and they have an Over record of 7-2 in their last 9 home games.

In the last 4 games between these 2 teams the total has gone Over every time.

Jason’s Pick: The Pacers are playing with a ton of confidence and are at home, but I think the loss will do the Heat good and they will come out and show they are the better team tonight with a win.
