Indiana came back from a 13-point second-quarter deficit and suffocated Miami down the stretch to pull out the 90-84 win and increase its lead in the conference. The Pacers made just enough plays late in the game to keep themselves out of arm's reach of the Heat and protect home court.
Roy Hibbert went for 24 points to lead all scorers, and Paul George and David West scored 17 apiece in the Indy win. The Pacers' defense also held the Heat to less than 43 percent shooting, as LeBron James and Dwyane Wade put up just 17 points each to lead Miami.
The Pacers shot better than 50 percent from the floor, but turnovers allowed the Heat to take a big lead early in the game and stick around all night. Indiana also won the rebound battle, 43-33, which continues to be a major issue for Miami.
I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say, please give us seven games of this in late May, NBA.
