Late Game Heroics Lead Heat To Victory
- Updated: May 23, 2013
The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers game was one to remember. The Heat were favored entering the game, but knew they would have a tough task when playing Indiana.
This game was full of big shots and cold blood. With time running out in the 4th quarter, Paul George pulled a deep three that resulted in the twine twisting leaving the ball in the bottom of the net, Paul George would later hit 3 straight free throws in overtime to give his squad a 1 point lead…
…But there was still 2.2 seconds left. Everyone watching knew that Lebron was getting the ball, and he did. With 2.2 seconds left, Lebron drove to the rack as time expired to give Miami a win in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals. Lebron James who is showing time and time again why people are already comparing him Jordan. Lebron finished the game with a triple double and is now 7 for 16 in playoff games with under 25 seconds left.
Miami now leads the series 1-0, and game two will take place on Friday at 8:30 PM Eastern.
