INDIANAPOLIS (AP/WTHR) - Tyler Herro had 19 points, Duncan Robinson scored 11 of his 17 points in a decisive third quarter and seven Miami players scored in double figures as the Heat routed the Indiana Pacers 122-108.

Bam Adebayo and Derrick Jones each scored 18 points, Goran Dragic and Kendrick Nunn added 15 each and Jimmy Butler pitched in with 14 points for Miami.

The Pacers were led by forward Domantas Sabonis, who finished with 27 points and 14 rebounds for his 30th double-double of the season.

Things got heated in the game midway through the third quarter. Butler and Pacers small forward T.J. Warren each received a technical foul following a foul by Warren with 6:29 remaining in the period. Seven seconds later, Butler was called for an offensive foul on Warren, who followed him back up the floor applauding. Warren received a second technical foul for taunting and was ejected.

After Butler blew kisses in Warren's direction to say "good bye," Warren responded with an obscene gesture that was caught on camera during the game broadcast.

Former Heat star Dwyane Wade tweeted during the game it "Feels like the old @MiamiHEAT and @Pacers" with a GIF showing a confrontation between himself and former Pacer Lance Stephenson.
