Posted February 05, 2018 03:04:38 The Miami Heat are currently undefeated at home against the Indiana Pacers.
This is their second straight win in the series, and it came against a Pacers team that finished the season on a high note with a 16-game winning streak.
In that stretch, the Pacers have won nine of their last 10 and are currently in the midst of a six-game home winning streak and a five-game road winning streak (although they’re on the back foot in games at Boston, Toronto and Indiana).
With the Heat currently riding a six game home winning streaks and five road winning streaks, I thought it was time to share some of my thoughts on how the Heat’s two-game trip to Boston, Houston, Chicago and Oklahoma City will be viewed by the NBA.
The Heat are coming off a road win against the Chicago Bulls in which they won 103-97.
This game was a rematch of the 2014 NBA Finals, which Miami won in six games.
LeBron James scored 29 points and grabbed 19 rebounds in the win.
The Heat also won a hard-fought Game 2 at home vs. the Boston Celtics on Saturday, which was their third straight win.
They beat the Celtics 98-91 in Game 1, and they held the Celtics scoreless in Game 2 before ultimately getting a shot in overtime.
The Heat won the series in five games and advanced to the NBA Finals.
Miami has won eight of their past nine games at home, and this is the third time the Heat have been swept in the first round of the playoffs.
The Celtics have won five of their seven road games against the Heat.
Boston won the first two meetings in Boston, including the 2012 NBA Finals when LeBron James and Kevin Garnett combined for a career-high 36 points.
The Pacers have only won two games at the United Center against Miami in the regular season, but they’re coming off back-to-back victories over the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals and are 4-0 on the road against the team that won the 2014 title.
The series is currently tied at 2-2.
The Miami-Indiana game will be broadcast on TNT and ESPN2, and the game will air on Sunday, February 7 at 4:30 p.m.
ET on ESPN.
