What kind of bull**** are they saying? They get all the breaks on fouls in Shaq....so they better not complain about the calls.

Not to mention WHAT they say...raving about Qyntel Woods. It's just annoying.

They are pretty anoying and miss informed. First they said Dale was cut by Portland and that is how we got him. Then they said Jack was suspened 25 games (I know thats a small one) but the one that is anoying me the most is that they keep saying we are without two of our best players Jamaal and Jermaine. What about RON!!!!

It's frustrating how we have absolutely no ability to defend Wade. Of course, there really isn't anyone in the league who can, which I guess is why the Heat are so good. Why can't we ever have one of those players?

72-74 Pacers.

P's had a bigger lead but Miami is slowly coming back, mainly because of the enormous talent gap between the two teams. They'll bust it open in the fourth, but the Pacers have shown a lot of spirit, as they have of late.

These announcers should not be allowed to call games. After that goal tend one of the idiots said they called it because they believed that the ball hit the bakboard first. He said this after they showed the replay CLEARLY showing that being exactly what happened.

indytoad
03-31-2005, 10:57 PM
When it comes down to it, in the fourth quarter, the team with two undefendable players is gonna win out over the team with none. They can just go to Shaq every time and he'll score every time - the game is over, unless the Pacers go three-crazy or Miami forgets how to play basketball.

AP - Mar 31, 11:11 pm EST

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Stephen Jackson forced overtime by making a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left, then put the Pacers ahead for good on another 3 with 1:54 remaining to lead Indiana to a 114-108 victory Thursday night over the Miami Heat.

It was the third straight overtime game between the teams, and Indiana extended its winning streak over the Heat to 12 in a row.

Jackson finished with 29 points, while Reggie Miller had 31 points and 13 assists. Miller shot 11-for-18 from the field and made all eight of his free throws for Indiana, which defeated the Heat 106-100 in Miami on Jan. 21 and 93-91 at home Feb. 23.

For Miami, Dwyane Wade scored 37 points, Damon Jones had 27 and Shaquille O'Neal 24. O'Neal, who grabbed 13 rebounds, did not score in overtime after tallying 10 points in the fourth quarter.

Indiana trailed 92-86 with 1:43 remaining, but Anthony Johnson hit a jumper from the free-throw line and a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 92-91 with 29 seconds left.

Wade, who scored the Heat's last six points of regulation, made a shot to give Miami a 94-91 lead with 10 seconds remaining.

After a timeout, Jackson missed a 3, Dale Davis grabbed an offensive rebound and Austin Croshere passed to Jackson just to the right of the top of the key. His 3-pointer tied it, and Wade missed an alley-oop attempt off an inbounds pass on the final play of regulation.

Jackson's 3-pointer with 1:54 left in overtime gave Indiana a 104-102 lead, and Keyon Dooling missed a 6-footer for Miami. Davis made two foul shots after grabbing an offensive rebound, making it 106-102. After Wade missed a jumper, Miller knocked down a 15-footer for a six-point lead.

Davis had 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Anthony Johnson had 16 points and 13 assists.

The game was close throughout, with 16 ties and 15 lead changes.

Notes

The last time the Heat won at Indiana was Dec. 31, 2001. ... Miller has made 49 consecutive free throws, still shy of the personal-best 61 he recorded earlier in the season.
