The Miami Heat took a 3-2 lead over the Pacers and look to close out the series on Thursday night.

The Miami Heat won decisively on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 series lead over the Indiana Pacers. After struggling with the Pacers in their previous win to even the series, the Heat decided to get physical and wear down Indiana. This resulted in a couple of flagrant fouls and the Pacers ultimately wilting, leading to a Heat blowout win.

The Heat might have demoralized the Pacers in the victory, as Pacers team president Larry Bird called his own team "soft" after the game. If the Heat jump out to an early lead over Indiana, they could realistically coast to closing out the series in six games to get ready for the Eastern Conference Finals.

Game time: Thursday May 24, 2012; 8:00 p.m. EST

Location: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN

TV coverage: ESPN
