Ian Mahinmi blocks Chris Bosh at the rim (VIDEO)

May 24, 2014, 9:47 PM EST

That pretty much sums up how the first 20 minutes of Game 3 went for the Heat.

Miami’s offense was sloppy (both teams were sloppy, frankly) but combine that with stout interior defense by the Pacers the Heat were struggling to put up points — Miami had 28 points with just three minutes left in the half.

Chris Bosh — or the lack of Chris Bosh — has been part of the Miami offense, he started out 1-of-5 shooting and that doesn’t include this rejection at the rim by Ian Mahinmi.

That said, the Pacers can’t score enough to pull away and by the half it was a 4 point game.

    Don’t worry, Refs will do their part…

    Indy plays a dumb brand of basketball and it has to be infuriating to their fan base. They should be controlling this game…but turnover after turnover is killing them. They need a true point guard so Lance or Paul don’t have to initiate the offense. I will say again what I’ve been saying all season, Indy or Miami will not last more than 5 (6 at the most) games against the Spurs, who will not beat themselves. The Spurs gave away a title last season, it won’t happen this time around.

      They are horrible, or Turrible if you like..

      kb2408 your basketball brilliance is amazing. You think that in a seven game series Miami or the Pacers will only last 6 games at most. Golly what a brave prediction. I was think they could go at least ten or twelve games with the Spurs. lol

      “…the Spurs, who will not beat themselves. The Spurs gave away a title last season…”

      Makes sense. Wait, no it doesn’t.

    You’ve been making terrible predictions for 3 years now. Take a break for a while.

    The NBA is unwatchable.This is why i keep saying they should only count team fouls and not player fouls.It`s one thing to have to overcome bad calls but to lose your best player and point guard because of bad calls gives the refs too much control of outcomes.

    Every time the wind blows Lebron goes to the foul line. He fell down in the first half and they called a foul on George. Hmm.

      crybaby

      Heat are not exactly blazing a trail to the foul line this series.

      Good and bad calls for both teams.

      you got the nothing left but the whine tonight

    The fouls on Hill have been just as bad and with the way Watson has been playing just as important.This is another game that is decided more by how it`s officiated than played.They kept Miami in the game the 1st half by putting George & Hill on the bench when Indiana had the 15 point lead and it went to 4.

    That’s okay, this is obviously before Lebron went into flop mode. Refs turn it around right after this.

      Losers like Magic fans gonna hate.

    You guys sound hurt when the Heat win…

  9. jzone954 - May 25, 2014 at 12:19 AM

    @kb24. Doesn’t matter, the players and coaching staff on the spurs know miami can beat them…

    The Pacers have a better chance of beating the Heat than either of the remaining West teams. The people in San Antonio and Oklahoma City don’t want to see the terror from South Beach decimating their teams again
