Can the Pacers fight off elimination at the hands of the Heat in Game 5? That is the question that a May 28 ESPN preview presents, and by the looks of it, there’s trouble in Indy. Bankers Life Fieldhouse will be the site for tonight’s live stream and TV scheduled game, courtesy of ESPN’s family of networks.

Looking to punch their ticket into their fourth straight NBA Finals series, the Miami Heat look for the knockout blow and some needed rest time. Fighting for their NBA playoff lives, the Indiana Pacers will do their best to extend this best-of-seven series to at least one more game, but history isn’t on their side.

The fact that only eight teams have been able to come back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA playoffs makes this a daunting task. Nevertheless, Frank Vogel’s biggest concern has to be that his team appears to be completely overmatched versus the two-time defending NBA champs.

After being limited to 26 points or less through the first three contests, LeBron James had a breakout game Monday night. After all the fuzz surrounding the “rivalry” between him and Lance Stephenson, four-time MVP wanted to send a message to the remaining three teams in the NBA playoffs.

An SI report on May 27 details how James responded to the Pacers’ provocations with a dominant performance. Led by his 32 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Miami cruised to a 102-90 victory in front of the home crowd to take a commanding 3-1 lead.

Can the Indiana Pacers live to fight another day by sending this series back to South Florida for Game 6? If NBA playoffs oddsmakers are correct, the Indiana Pacers’ [+3] season will come to an end, as the Miami Heat [-3] are favored by a long-range bucket this evening.

In addition to Game 5’s spread, the OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 184 points, and alternate betting lines have Miami valued at -120 and Indiana’s odds of an upset are calculated at +102. Look for Indy to come out and play with a sense of urgency and desperation, and ultimately come away with the victory - Examiner Free NBA Playoffs Game 5 Picks: Indiana Pacers [+3].
