Pacers Beat Heat to Force Game Seven

Pacers Beat Heat to Force Game SevenBrian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports

Maybe the Pacers are just prolonging their defeat. Maybe the Heat is really falling apart. Maybe Indiana just wants it more. But the fact is there's going to be a game seven.

Indiana saved itself from elimination by beating Miami at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers' 91-77 victory was spearheaded by a hungry Paul George, who scored 28 points on an 11-for-19 night. Roy Hibbert had 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, LeBron James' 29-point, seven-rebound performance just wasn't enough to propel a struggling Heat offense. Tonight's 36 percent shooting performance was Miami's worst of the season.

So right now, Pacers got the momentum heading into the final game this Monday and the Heat is looking pretty shaky. Pat Riley isn't a happy camper right now.
