The Indiana Pacers’ rollercoaster ride this season continues, as the team has now lost three straight contests after a controversial no-call late in the game hoisted the Atlanta Hawks past the Blue and Gold on Wednesday, sinking them to a 9-15 record.

Despite losing the opening game of their six-game homestand, the Pacers will have another crack to gain positive momentum as they play hosts to the Miami Heat which, while pegged as one of the East’s most dangerous teams, will banner a shorthanded lineup. Indiana, which has already defeated them in their lone meeting this season, will have a bigger cushion to play with.

On the season, the Pacers are 6-5 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse and 5-11 against the East while the Heat are 7-6 on the road and 7-4 against conference foes. Indiana ranks 17th in offensive rating and 12th in defensive rating while Miami sits at ninth and 12th, respectively, on the same departments.

Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat Prediction

Miami is usually a tough cover for Indiana, but the Heat’s makeshift lineups sans their best players will exacerbate their chances against a motivated Pacers team, especially in the frontcourt, where the lack of Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler will be as costly as advertised.

Given the Heat’s proclivity for gritty contests, expect this game to a low-scoring affair, as the Pacers’ deliberate offense plays to the cards of Miami’s aggressive half court defense. Still, without much reliable firepower outside of Tyler Herro, Indiana should be able to pull away late and seal the victory to snap their three-game skid.
