Heat's Defense Steps Up, Pacers' Offense Starts To Struggle

For all the talk about the Heat’s inconsistent offense, it’s really their defense that tends to waver. They’re never bad defensively, but there are times where they are great and times where they are average. For the first three minutes of the third quarter, they have been great with their ball pressure, and that’s allowed them to get back into the game.

If Miami’s defense can be consistently great, Indiana will commit lots of turnovers and get stagnant offensively. That’s what the Pacers do.
