The onus is now very much back on the Pacers, who must win at home on Tuesday night to avoid heading back to Miami for an elimination game on Friday.


The Heat demonstrated exactly why they are the defending champions in Game 3, sealing a comprehensive 18-point blowout win to inflict the first home defeat of the postseason on Indiana.


As a result, Miami snatched the initiative back from their rivals and will head into Game 4 confident of being able to produce a repeat performance and are favourites at 1.78


In contrast, just as Erik Spoelstra's men bounced back from disappointment, Pacers coach Frank Vogel must now mastermind a comeback of his own.


It is difficult to disregard the first two meetings in which Indiana were very effective, but the Heat looked as though things just might be falling into place as they had contributions across the roster while the Pacers defence was not good enough.


Game 4 will be a much closer affair, and its unpredictable nature makes it a fascinating encounter. However, despite home advantage and the "do or die" nature of this game, the Pacers may have just lost both momentum and the series.


Recommended Bets:

Back Miami to win @ 1.78

Back over 184.5 pts @ 1.89
