Heat Look to Take 2-1 East Finals Lead on Pacers Saturday Night

Miami needs same effort as game two to grab the lead

In order to grab the series lead on Saturday night, the Heat need to duplicate the effort they put forth in game two of the series in Indiana, which tied things up at one. The Heat will need to contain Paul George, who has been cleared to play in game three, if they want to win this game. The Heat love playing at home, losing just nine games there in the regular season.

Indiana relieved George is in the lineup on Saturday

George suffered a concussion in game two of the East Finals, but finished the contest. It was unknown earlier this weekend if he would be available for game three, but he has been cleared to play for the Pacers. This is a major boost for the Pacers, who need all hands on deck to take down Miami on the road. The Pacers might have to deal with more Greg Oden tonight, who could be in the rotation for Miami.

In what will be a hotly contested game and series, the Pacers will need a lot to go their way on Saturday night if they want to win game three on the road. The Heat are 7-point favorites at Sportsbook.ag over the Pacers, which is why we will drop 15 percent of our bankroll on Miami to take the 2-1 series lead.
