Overlooked during the regular season and given little chance to
upset the reigning East champions, the Pacers took a 2-1 lead in
the best-of-seven series.
Game 4 is Sunday at raucous Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
LeBron James scored 22 -- 16 in the first half before wearing
down -- and Mario Chalmers added 25 for Miami. However, Dwyane Wade
scored only 5 on 2-of-13 shooting for the Heat, already missing
forward Chris Bosh because of a strained abdominal muscle and not
expected to return for this series.
