2013 NBA Playoffs highlights: Pacers even series against Heat

Andy Lyons

Game 4 against the Heat and Pacers, now in .GIF form.

As well as the Heat started in Game 3, it started just as poorly in Game 4 against the Pacers. Miami found itself down 11-0 quickly in the first quarter as the Indiana crowd sustained a raucous mood.

Dwyane Wade certainly didn't do the Heat any favors early on, including this missed open layup.

Lance Stephenson had a fantastic scoring night, but here we'll recognize his equally good acting skills.

Speaking of flops, there were a bunch tonight. Here's my other favorite, courtesy of LeBron and David West.

Roy Hibbert was terrific on the glass and in the paint on offense. Chris Bosh struggled mightily, couldn't get any rhythm going and ultimately suffered an ankle injury that sent him to the locker room for a while late in the game.

The early lead Indiana had evaporated and Miami took a small one of its own thanks mostly to LeBron James, of course. Especially thanks to this block on George Hill who must have been delusional to think he had that layup.

But Hill came back on the next trip down, hit a jumper and drew the foul for a three-point play, touting the MJ tongue wag in the process.

The momentum again swung in favor of Indiana as it maintained a small lead well into the fourth quarter. LeBron hit a three to pull Miami close, but he would foul out shortly afterward.

Then it would just be free throws for the Pacers as they drained the clock and sent Indianapolis into a frenzy.
