Jimmy Butler led the effort with 27 points, five rebounds, and six assists. Bam Adebayo delivered a massive double-double of 20 points and 18 rebounds, plus four assists, a steal, and two blocks.
Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson scored 18 and 14 points respectively as the only other double-figure contributors.
Goran Dragic returned after missing four games playing 24 minutes and contributing four points. Kendrick Nunn did not play.
Udonis Haslem (protocols), and KZ Okpala (protocols) were out Monday and listed as day-to-day.
Nemanja Bjelica played in his first match getting five minutes on the court collecting a single rebound. Victor Oladipo hasn’t yet played for the Heat since being traded to the team.
Without Bradley Beal in the lineup for Washington, it looked good for the Pacers to collect their fifth win in six games but another Wizards’ star had something to say about it.
Russell Westbrook who only joined the Wizards this season entered the franchise record books with the most triple-doubles in history with 35 points, 14 rebounds, and 21 assist effort.
It’s one thing to let Westbrook score 35 points but to allow him to simply dominate all aspects of the game is another. The best the Pacers could offer came from Domantas Sabonis who provided a double-double of 35 points and 11 rebounds
Malcolm Brogdon added 26 points and eight assists. Myles Turner and Justin Holiday scored 11 and 10 points respectively as the only other double-figure contributors.
While Westbrook posed the biggest issue the bench was another problem with the Wizards outscoring the Pacers bench 49 to 34.
Doug McDermott (ankle) missed the game Monday and is questionable for Wednesday. The Pacers advised TJ Warren will miss the remainder of the season.

Free Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
In terms of the main categories, the Pacers perform better with the 15th ranked offense and 12 ranked defense while the Heat rank 24th and 8th respectively. Oladipo missed the Monday game in New York with a head cold and it’s unclear if he’ll suit up Wednesday. If he does it would help bolster the Heat offense.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat ATS
