Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Thursday, April 1st 2021, at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat Preview

Indiana suffered on a history-making night for Russell Westbrook early Tuesday, as the 2016-17 MVP had 35 points, a season-high 21 assists and 14 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards team to a 132-124 win. 

He claimed the franchise's career triple-double record after just 38 games in Washington and a feat made even more impressive as a league-leading scorer and backcourt partner Bradley Beal watched on with a bruised hip. 

Rui Hachimura scored 26 points, and PF Chandler Hutchison had 18 with efficient shooting splits on his Wizards debut, sealing a second straight win, having lost eight of the previous nine. Westbrook's big night overshadowed a monster effort from Domantas Sabonis, who had 35 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. 

Malcolm Brogdon wasn't far behind (26 pts, eight assists), though Caris LeVert and Justin Holiday struggled with their scoring (18 pts combined on 6-of-25 shooting). Brogdon lamented their inability to get more stops and said Washington played harder, something they must rectify against a tougher test – Miami next overnight. 

Jimmy Butler led with 27 points and a game-high six assists, helping Erik Spoelstra's men snap a six-match losing streak to overcome the New York Knicks last time out. 

Bam Adebayo was two rebounds shy of a 20-20 game (20 pts, 18 rebs), while Duncan Robinson added 14 and Tyler Herro was impactful off the bench with 18 points and four assists. Robinson reflected afterwards: 

"It's a great feeling [to win after] you drop any in a row, let alone six. We were struggling, so it's certainly nice to just get this one." 

Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is narrowly favouring Miami (57.8%) and after my last prediction on them proved spot on, I'm inclined to back another Heat victory here too. Goran Dragic (back spasms) returned, while Kendrick Nunn (ankle) is questionable – two guards that could play a pivotal role against a patchy Eastern Conference rival.
