If it's possible for the Miami Heat to play any better, we might have to begin considering sending the entire team to the Olympics. The Heat have taken a commanding halftime lead over the Indiana Pacers, 68-39 in a display of offensive prowess and defensive dominance. This marks the seventh time this season that the Heat have scored at least 60 points by halftime.
In a night that has the makings of a triple double, LeBron James has 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. Dwyane Wade leads all scorers with 16 points, and Chris Bosh has 11 points.
Indiana's Danny Granger left early in the first half with a sprained ankle, his return is questionable. The Pacers were led by David West's 10 points but he conspicuously failed to record a single rebound in the first half.
The Heat have forced 11 turnovers and have held the Pacers to just 34% shooting, including 1 of 10 from 3-point range. The Heat have also out rebounded Indiana, 26 to 16 in what has been an all round impressive performance in the third game of Miami's back-to-back-to-back stretch; no team has won all three of their consecutive games.
