Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers: Game 3 Postgame Grades and Anaylsis
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Well, I guess that answers the question of how the Miami Heat would respond after a tough Game 2 loss to the Indiana Pacers. 

The Heat dominated the Pacers from the tip, winning 114-96, which was the Heat's fifth road win and the Pacers' first home loss all playoffs.

Miami has yet to lose a road game this postseason, and it's mainly because of its potent offensive attack. In Game 3, the Heat dropped 70 first-half points, and they also kept the Pacers from hitting any kind of rhythm throughout the night. 

LeBron James led the way with 22 points, four rebounds and three assists, but Udonis Haslem stole the spotlight with a ridiculously impressive 17 points and seven rebounds. If that wasn't enough, it should be noted that Chris Andersen went 4-of-4 from the field and has yet to miss a single shot from the field during this series.

Roy Hibbert did all he could with 20 points and 17 rebounds, but he couldn't get it done for Indiana, even with David West's 21 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pacers just couldn't match the Heat's intensity and their efficiency—as Miami committed just five turnovers all game—and that led to a rough Game 3 loss for the Pacers.
