The Indiana Pacers tried their hardest, but thankfully, the Miami Heat were desperate to keep ahead in their playoff race, and Dwayne Wade was at his absolute best. It took an overtime, but in the end the Wade finished with 43 points and the Heat prevailed, 105-96, giving the Pacers a friendly nudge in the lottery.
It feels a little weird doing this, but right now, the Pacers are still 10th in the East at 28-48. On the bright side, they are only a couple of games ahead of New York and Philadelphia, so with a little luck and a few more losses, the Pacers could drop a few more places in the standings. Fingers crossed.
