On their way to an NBA title last season, the Miami Heat avoided an early scare and eliminated the Indiana Pacers in the second round.
In their first meeting since that series, the Heat will try to snap the Pacers' longest home winning streak in nearly three years Tuesday night.
Miami trailed Indiana 2-1 in an Eastern Conference semifinal series in 2012 before outscoring the Pacers by an average of 17.3 points while reeling off three wins in a row - two in Indianapolis.
Now, the Heat (23-9) are looking to end Indiana's seven-game home winning streak, the club's longest since an eight-game run Feb. 27-March 30, 2010.
Miami is 9-35 in Indianapolis during the regular season and just 7-6 on the road this season heading into its second six-game road trip of 2012-13. The team went 4-2 during the previous one Nov. 9-17.

December 2012 was a month that Paul George probably wished would never end. In 15 games George averaged a shade under 19 points per game on about 46% from the floor, and he also saw increases in his rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. It was was the best stretch of his career to date; he literally did everything at a high level, helping his Indiana Pacers to go 10-5. As...
