[7:08 PM] Pacers @ Heat

Who will WIN this matchup?

Indiana Pacers (13-12)

@ Miami Heat (8-17)


The line for this game is Miami by 1.5 points.

The Indiana Pacers still can’t seem to decide what kind of team they want to be, but at least they’re finding ways to win. The Pacers will try to push their winning streak to three in a row when they open a three-game road trip by visiting the Miami Heat on Wednesday.

Some of Indiana’s optimism stems from the rapid maturation of center Myles Turner, who buried four 3-pointers en route to 22 points in Monday’s win while adding seven rebounds and four blocks. Turner is averaging 18.5 points and is 8-of-13 from 3-point range in the last four games.

Dragic is doing everything he can to drag Miami into the win column and poured in 34 points on 14-of-23 shooting in Monday’s triumph. The 30-year-old is shooting 54 percent from the floor while averaging 24 points in the last five games but needed to score a season high and get 17 points and 16 rebounds from Whiteside to finally get the Heat a victory.

Pacers SG Monta Ellis (groin) sat out Monday and will miss Wednesday’s game.

Heat SF Justise Winslow (wrist) missed his 16th straight game on Monday but took part in shootaround and could be close to a return.

The teams split four meetings last season, with Miami winning both of its games at home.
