After holding off a second-half run from the Indiana Pacers, the Miami Heat escaped Game 3 with a 124-114 win to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their first-round series. The Heat can send the Pacers home with a win Monday evening and get some rest before the second round series begins.
The Heat have some uncertainty about their wing depth. Jae Crowder, Andre Iguodala and Derrick Jones Jr. are all listed as questionable. All three have been cogs of Miami’s playoff rotation. If any of them miss Game 4, we could see Kendrick Nunn or Solomon Hill get some playing time.
