The Miami Heat took a 3-0 series lead over the Indiana Pacers with a 124-115 victory.

Miami jumped out to a big lead early and held off a late push by Indiana. The Heat out-rebounded the Pacers 46-37.

Bam Adebayo finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Jimmy Butler finished with 27 points and Goran Dragic had 24. Rookie Tyler Herro added 20 points off the bench.

Malcolm Brogdon was excellent for the Pacers, finishing with 34 points, 14 assists and seven rebounds. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the team struggled late and failed to execute when Indiana had a chance to tie the game.

The Heat will look to sweep the Pacers in Game 4. Indiana was swept by Boston in the postseason last year.
