Miami Heat Win Three Games in Three Days: Fan Reaction
The Miami Heat won their third game in three days on Feb. 14, defeating the Indiana Pacers 105-90. With the win, the Heat remain at the second spot in the NBA's Eastern Conference standings, trailing the Chicago Bulls by half a game.
Even though Miami's schedule has been rough lately, the Heat showed no signs of fatigue, building up a 17 point lead by the end of the first quarter. By halftime, the Heat had stretched their lead to 29 points, quieting Indiana fans.
The Heat slowed things down a bit in the second half, but by then, they already had the game under wraps.
"Our guys wanted this challenge and we were well aware it had not been done in 40 years, to back-to-back-to-back on the road and be able to stay focused," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters after the game. "We threw out anything we could have used as a crutch."
"I think as far as team chemistry, we got better every single night," LeBron told reporters. "Tonight we had 17 assists. We rebounded and defended. When we do that, we're very, very tough to beat and it shows the professionalism of the group."
Dwyane Wade also had a decent game against the Pacers, finishing with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Chris Bosh's struggles continued against Indiana, converting on only three of his nine field goal attempts. He finished the game with 13 points and 7 rebounds.
The Heat will get some much needed rest before heading over to face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Feb 17. LeBron will be highly motivated to play his former team, and the Heat should be able to increase their current win streak to four games.
