Game Rewind

The Indiana Pacers battled their way to a tough 110-102 road win against the Miami Heat on Friday night. Despite continued woes at the free-throw line and losing Thad Young to ejection late in the second quarter, the Pacers made enough plays in the fourth quarter to win their fourth road game in a row.

In the fourth, Indiana led 90-87 before Miami nailed back-to-back triples to retake the lead with 6:55 to go. Miami led 102-98 with 1:38 to play, but from there the Pacers took over.

The score was 102-100 with under a minute to play, and Bojan Bogdanovic drilled a 3-pointer to give the Pacers a one-point lead. After a defensive stop, Victor Oladipo knocked down a jump shot to give Indiana a 105-102 advantage with 32 seconds left.

After a Miami turnover, the Heat sent the Pacers to the free-throw line, and though they struggled mightily from the charity stripe on the night (17-of-29, 58.6 percent), Darren Collison made a pair the team had to have to put Indiana up five.

After another Heat turnover, Victor Oladipo sealed the game with a three-point play, and in all, the Pacers ended the game with a 12-0 run to leave Miami with a victory.

Prolific scoring wasn't the case in the early going, as both offenses were sluggish out of the gate. With 5:38 to play in the opening quarter the teams had only combined for 23 points, as the Pacers led 12-11.

Miami took the lead with a 7-0 run to lead 18-12, but the Pacers fired right and tied things at 20 with 1:57 left in the first. When the quarter came to a close Miami led 26-24.

Miami came out firing in the second. Led by four 3-pointers in the early stages of the quarter, the Heat opened up a 43-32 lead with 7:52 to play in the half.

The Pacers would get back into it though, as a Myles Turner dunk at the 2:31 mark cut the deficit to two, 49-47.

Less than a minute later, the Pacers lost Thad Young for the game as he was ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul against Kelly Olynyk. Miami finished the half on a 10-4 run to lead 59-51.

To start the third, Indiana quickly cut into its halftime deficit to a single digit, thanks to a 7-0 run. The Pacers took its first lead of the quarter, 76-74, with 3:11 left in the third.

Miami regained the lead soon after, 79-78, but the Pacers ended the quarter with a 6-1 spurt to lead 84-80 heading into the final period, where they were able to hold off Miami.

The Pacers were led by 22 points and 10 assists from Oladipo. Off the bench, Domantas Sabonis contributed 17 points and 11 rebounds.

For Miami, Olynyk was its leading scorer with 20 points. Josh Richardson added 18.
