Pacers 94 Heat 75
Don’t look now, but the Indiana Pacers took a 2-1 series lead with a 94-75 beat down for the Miami Heat in game 3.
After going into the halftime break tied, the Pacers came out and put the wood the the Heat in the third. The game was never in doubt in the second half. Roy Hibbert had his best game of the playoffs with 19 points, 18 rebounds and 5 blocks. George Hill scored 20 points and Danny Granger added 17 points for the Pacers. Mario Chalmers led Miami with 25 points while LeBron James scored 22 points but had only 5 points in the second half. Dwayne Wade was held to only 5 points.
The Pacers will look to push the Heat to the brink in game 5 Sunday afternoon from Conseco Fieldhouse.
Spurs 105 Clippers 88
The San Antonio Spurs continue to roll as the once again made easy work of the Los Angeles Clippers defeating them 105-88 in game two Thursday night.
The birthday boy Tony Parker led the San Antonio charge with 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. Tim Duncan had another good night with 18 points, while Boris Diaw contributed 16 points. Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 20 points. Chris Paul had another frustrating night scoring only 10 points.
The series now shifts to Los Angeles for games 3 and 4.

Wow, who would have thought that the Heat would be down 2-1 to the Pacers after 3 games. This is insane and this is why you play the regular season. Without Chris Bosh the Pacers have no mismatch on the front line and Roy Hibbert is just going to town, although he might have done that anyways with Bosh in the lineup. But it’s obvious that Lebron can’t keep playing the 4 because it’s just too tolling on him. He’s big but he’s not that big to do it game in and game out and be expected to put up MVP numbers. This series is going to go down to the wire likely and hopefully it’s a dandy. Also, you think you could take a look at my blog because I really want to know what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/its-your-fault-pat-riley/
