Happening at the American Airlines Arena today, May 30 (May 31 Mla time), the Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers Game 5 started so tight that both teams were unable to score in the first 3 minutes of the game.

The Miami Heat owned the 3rd quarter BIGTIME, scoring more than double the Pacers'. Their biggest lead in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers (14 points) came during the last 16 minutes of the 3rd quarter after a 3-point shot by Lebron James. At this point, Lebron already has 27 points.

3rd quarter wrapped up with the Miami leading by 13 points, 57-70.

The Heat scored 30 points in the 3rd Q alone while the Pacers only had a miserable 13 points.

In the 4th Quarter, the Pacers were very determined to overcome Miami's big 13-point lead. And it looked like they were in control early in this last quarter.
