2023/24 National Basketball Association (NBA) season
Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers
Sunday 3 December 2023
Miami Heat will square off with the Indiana Pacers in a National Basketball Association (NBA)
match on 3 December.
This will be the 129th meeting between the two teams in regular-season games since 1988 when the Heat were established.
The Pacers have the edge in this rivalry having recorded 72 wins compared to the Heat's 55 victories from 128 matches.
The Heat defeated the Pacers, 116-111 in a game that was played at the Kaseya Center on 9 February 2023.
Bam Adebayo led all scorers with a season-high tying 38 points for the Heat who improved to 30-25 on the season, while the Pacers fell to 25-31.
The Heat's star player Jimmy Butler recorded 25 points, five rebounds, and seven assists in the victory over the Pacers and he will be keen to inspire his side to another win.
Meanwhile, Buddy Hield, who tallied a team-high 29 points for the Pacers against the Heat, will be determined to propel his side to a win in Miami.
"There was definitely a competitive spirit," Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said recently about his side's poor form in the current season.
"I commend the guys for making that a fight at different times, and we were hobbled at different times. It was a pretty ugly game, and we were doing whatever we possibly could to keep it in striking distance,
"But we just weren't able to keep it to 6-8 points throughout the second half. It's frustrating, but it wasn't a matter of want or a lack of effort."
