Jim Eichenhofer: Hard to believe some of the injury luck with this team at times. Elfrid Payton had played in 305 out of a possible 328 games of his four-year #NBA career prior to 2018-19, but just missed nine games with ankle sprain and now has broken finger only 8 minutes into return from it
Barry Jackson: Heat (6-9) loses 99-91 in Indy despite Richardson’s 28, Whiteside’s 12 & 17. Indy has won seven more games than Heat since trading Paul George. Of teams ahead of Heat in East in past year-plus, that’s the most disappointing one from Heat perspective. Pacers are simply better.
