New, comments

The Heat look to take complete control of the series with another win tonight in Miami. The Pacers need a win to even the series headed back to Indiana for game five.

The Heat seem to have taken control of this series with two straight wins after losing the opener. They have dominated the last two fourth quarters, with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James in game two, and a barrage of Ray Allen threes in game three. But it's their ability to turn up the defensive pressure and force the Pacers into bad shots and turnovers that has turned this series around. The Pacers are simply not good enough offensively to overcome the ferocious version of the Heat's defense, which isn't always there, but has been frequently enough in the last two games to help get the Heat wins.

The Heat can really put a hammerlock on this series with a win at home tonight.
