MIAMI — When the Pacers look back at Friday's game in Miami, one glaring deficiency will stand out. The Heat held a 56-34 rebounding advantage.

Miami pulled out the win 113-112. The Pacers had six seconds to get off a winning shot, but Aaron Holiday missed a driving floating jumper with one second left.

The Pacers trailed by two heading into the final quarter and by nine a few minutes later. But Indiana rallied and went ahead by as many as 4. Jeremy Lamb gave the Pacers a one point lead with 30 seconds left, only to see the Heat go out in front at the six second mark.

Holiday led 21-11 Indiana with 17 points and 9 assists. Jimmy Butler had 20 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the Heat who have won four straight.

The Pacers, now 21-11, are at New Orleans on Sunday, then back to Indianapolis for a 3 p.m. tip against Philadelphia on Tuesday.
