Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat. The NBA Pick for this game is the Miami Heat -5.5. The Pacers are not at their best with injuries to their key players taking its toll in the quarterfinal playoff rounds against the Heat in PF Domantas Sabonis (foot) and SG Jeremy Lamb (ACL). But SF TJ Warren is out to prove that his explosion in the bubble is no fluke. It appears that Miami has more talent at the moment. Indiana needs to win this match so as not to be in a deep-3 loss. Miami will take over game 3 to a predicted score of 112-106 to cover the spread.
