    Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem is once again out to do good in the community. He helped kick off the 2nd Annual 'Do Good Week' with a visit to 6 in the Mix and a surprise for Kelly Blanco.

    Myles Turner made almost every shot he took in Indiana's biggest win of the season, and even got a chance for a brief postgame chat with actor Matthew McConaughey.

    Everything went great for the Pacers.

    Everything went wrong for the Miami Heat.

    Bojan Bogdanovic scored 26 points, Turner added 25 on 11 of 14 shooting and the Pacers embarrassed the Heat in the second half on the way to a 120-95 rout Sunday night.

    "We moved the ball and guys were knocking down shots," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said.

    He made it sound so easy. What awaits the Heat at practice Monday is going to be very difficult.

    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra had no answers and would have probably preferred no questions after the game, making it very clear that what went on Sunday — and has gone on from time to time this season — is going to end.

    "One way or another, we're going to get down to the bottom of it," Spoelstra said. "I need to look at the film, assess and find some solutions. I don't have answers right now for why we give up 120 points and have an uninspiring play. ... We'll find a solution. We'll find a way to play Miami Heat basketball, one way or another."

    Heat players offered similar sentiment.

    "It sucks," center Hassan Whiteside said.

    "Terrible game, from the first minute to the last," point guard Goran Dragic said.

    "Embarrassing performance by us," said shooting guard Wayne Ellington, who led Miami with 21 points on seven 3-pointers.

    Turner made 11 of 14 shots for the Pacers, who won their third straight game overall and got their first win in Miami since Nov. 12, 2014. Each of the last 11 regular-season games in the series were won by the home team, until the Pacers emphatically changed that in this one.

    "I definitely haven't won here before," said Turner, who played in four previous games in Miami — all losses. "Maybe it's the weather."

    Victor Oladipo scored 15, Darren Collison had 12 points and 10 assists and Thaddeus Young added 12 for Indiana. The Pacers outscored Miami 69-40 in the game's final 25 minutes and shot 60 percent for the game.

    "We needed to come out and have a great start at the beginning of the second half," Oladipo said. "We did a good job of that."

    Whiteside and Josh Richardson each scored 15 and James Johnson added 10 for the Heat.

    Dion Waiters was scoreless for Miami, missing all 10 of his shots. Miami's starters were outscored by Indiana's 90-44 — a huge disappointment on the heels of a road win in Washington two nights earlier.

    "Look, I don't have an answer to our unreliability right now," Spoelstra said.
