The Miami Heat have an important stop in Indiana before heading to New York

Game Story:

The Miami Heat (26-10) are visiting the Indiana Pacers (23-14) for the first time this season as they will welcome back Justise Winslow to the active roster. The Heat are coming off a win at home over the Blazers on Sunday, while Indiana won in Charlotte on Monday.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse has always been a difficult place for the Heat to play and this Pacers team will make that no different. Miami won a one-point close finish in AAA about two weeks ago. The Heat will need to hope limit Sabonis in the paint like they did last time.

If the Heat are able to win this game, they will take another step forward in solidifying their position near the top of the East.

FiveThirtyEight has the Heat with a 43% chance to win this game.
