Indiana Pacers vs Miami HeatWith the series 1-1, the team that wins game three end up winning 77+% of the series; the Miami Heat will host the Indiana Pacers this Saturday at 8 PM ET, in what is a tremendously important match, at the American Airlines Arena.

The Heat won game two at Indiana and now they need to maintain their home court.

“I don’t know if the home court really matters right now in the playoffs,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It’s more about your collective disposition, and you’re imposing that identity on the other team. I think either team could win home or away.”

Indiana will have guard Paul George at full speed after being diagnosed with a concussion in game two, after a play involving Dwayne Wade.

“Under the care of the Indiana Pacers’ medical staff, Paul George has spent the past three days engaged in the NBA’s Return-to-Participation Exertion Protocol as part of the NBA’s Concussion Policy,” the Pacers said in a statement. “George remained symptom free after each step of the process. The Pacers staff consulted with Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the NBA’s Director of Concussion Management, throughout George’s progress through the protocol and Friday cleared him to return to normal basketball activity.”

The Miami Heat is 6.5 point favorites in the NBA betting lines and the game total is at 183 points. Indiana is 1-7 SU in its last 8 games when playing on the road against Miami.
