Recap



HEAT 93, PACERS 91 (OT): Dwyane Wade made a 19-foot buzzer-beater as the Miami Heat escaped in overtime to win their 12th consecutive home game against gutsy Indiana.

Wade had 28 points and seven assists. He scored 22 in the first half, but none were bigger than his final shot.

LeBron James had 27 points and eight rebounds and Chris Bosh scored 13.

After the Pacers took a 91-86 lead in overtime, Wade made one free throw, James canned a 28-footer and Bosh tied it at 91 before Wade's backbreaker. The Pacers went the final two minutes of overtime scoreless.

Danny Granger, who had just nine total points on 3-of-17 shooting in the first two games, scored 19 to lead the Pacers (23-15), who have lost three in a row.

David West had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Darren Collison added 14 points and six assists.

Miami had defeated the Pacers 118-83 on Jan. 4 and 105-90 in Indiana on Feb. 14.

This time, the Pacers slowed the game and it worked to their advantage for all but the final minute.

West put the Pacers up 83-82 with 34 seconds to go by making one of two free throws. Wade then threw a bad pass that Granger stole and made two subsequent free throws for an 85-82 lead. But James was up to the challenge, drilling a 24-foot 3-pointer that tied the scored with 10.2 seconds remaining.
