The Heat-Pacers line for Tuesday February 15, 2011 was set at -6 at Sportsbook.com.

The Miami Heat will travel to Indiana on Tuesday to take on the Indiana Pacers in the third game of their four-game road trip.

Miami had its eight-game win streak snapped on Sunday in Boston and fell to 0-3 against the Celtics on the season in an 85-82 loss. The Heat are now 26-26 ATS on the season and 17-11 ATS on the road. The loss snapped a four-game road win streak both overall and ATS. The Heat shot 41.9 percent from the field against Boston, which was the lowest they shot since their previous loss against the Knicks when they shot 41.7 percent. After averaging 33.0 PPG against the Pacers last season, Dwyane Wade has struggled against them this season. He scored a season-low three points and made just one of 13 shots in a loss on November 22. He then scored 17 points, but shot just 7-for-17 in a win on February 8. LeBron James is averaging 31.3 PPG in his past nine games against the Pacers, including scoring 41 against them on February 8. 

Indiana is 25-24 ATS overall this season and 14-11 ATS at home. The Pacers have won three straight and seven of their past eight games SU since Frank Vogel took over for Jim O’Brien. They have won two straight and five of their past six games ATS. Darren Collison scored 22 in the Pacers’ win over the Bucks on Saturday, but has really struggled against the Heat in his career. In his four games against Miami, Collison is averaging just 8.0 PPG while shooting 28.9 percent from the field. Roy Hibbert has struggled over his past two games, averaging just 9.5 PPG, but averaged 18.7 PPG and recorded four double-doubles in his previous six games.

The Pacers and Heat have split both games SU this season with the Pacers winning both games ATS. Miami won all four games last season against Indiana both ATS and SU. Two of those wins were at Indiana where the Heat had lost their previous 14 games. While Miami has dominated the East SU posting a 26-8 record, they are just 15-18-1 ATS. After starting the season 2-10 following an ATS loss, the Heat are 9-3-1 in such games since
