Heat stave off Pacers

(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI -- In their home opener last season, the Miami Heat squandered a double-digit lead and lost to the Charlotte Hornets, setting the tone for an 11-30 start.

The Heat appeared headed for a similar home-opening fate against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night. Miami built a 21-point third quarter lead and nearly surrendered it before holding off a late Pacers' rally for a 112-108 victory.

James Johnson's two free throws with 11 seconds remaining provided the final margin for Miami.
