East Finals Game 3: Heat Devour Pacers in 3rd Quarter


What you need to know about Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals:

  1. The Pacers lead 17-4 after the first 9 minutes of the 1st Quarter.
  2. Roy Hibbert and David West went 7 of 9 from the field in the 1st Quarter.
  3. They went 5 of 12 over the next three quarters.
  4. Luis Scola scored 8 points in 9 2nd-Quarter minutes. He played only 4 minutes in the second half.
  5. Lance Stephenson’s first half: 8 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals.
  6. Lance Stephenson’s second half: 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal. (LeBron’s defense)
  7. The Heat outscored the Pacers 95-70 over the final 39 minutes of game time.
  8. Miami destroyed Indiana 33-22 in the 3rd Quarter, in which they dissected the Pacers defense with penetration and cutting.
  9. James and Wade scored 22 of the 33 Heat points in the 3rd.
  10. The Heat shot 11 of 15 from the field and 9 of 11 from the line in the 3rd.

What to look for in Game 4:

The Pacers need to find the sustained ball movement they showed in Game 1, before Miami’s defense had revved up. David West’s impact cannot be overstated. The Pacers win when West is facilitating from the top of the key, and when Stephenson can dissect the defense with penetration. George Hill’s shooting improves. Paul George gets some space to operate. Everything works better. Miami’s defense is excellent and the injury to George seemed to impact his aggressiveness in Game 3.

Also, never leave Ray Allen in the corner. (As if they didn’t already know that).
