The Heat look to come back against a Pacers team they have recently dominated after a tough loss to Oklahoma City.

The Miami Heat are looking for something to take the sting out of Sunday's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. They get a chance to do that against the Indiana Pacers, whom they have defeated five times in a row and four straight times in Indianapolis. The Heat lost 103-87 on Sunday after turning the ball over a grand total of 21 times which led to 28 points by the Thunder.

LeBron James has been amazing in recent victories over the Pacers. In the last five wins over Indiana, the two-time NBA MVP has averaged 30.2 points and 7.4 assists. His assist to turnover ratio in that stretch has been three-to-one.

The Heat also need to continue their strong play against the Pacers' leading scorer Danny Granger. The Heat has held him to 9.3 points per game and only 29.4 percent shooting in this season's series. The Heat also have outrebounded the Pacers by an average of 10.3 rebounds per game during the season.

The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN. Television coverage will be provided by Sunshine Sports.
