"You get the ball out of one of those guys' hands and it gets to the other guy's," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "It's not like one superhero and a bunch of role guys." James closed with 40 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists, and Wade added 30 points, nine rebounds and six assists as the Heat ties the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series 2-2. "This is the epitome of a No. 2-No. 3 matchup," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It's just survival." This time, James and Wade were enough to overcome the depth of the Pacers, who were led by the 20 points of forward Danny Grange...

INDIANAPOLIS They have shown flash. They have shown talent and style. They have shown gall and conceit. They've just been a great show, or an awful example, depending on how you look at it.

Jay Pharoah generally does a solid job on Saturday Night Live, but his impression of ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith was especially funny.
