The Pacers came out determined and took control of the game. LeBron James responded in kind with a run of dominance of his own. The two teams went back and forth. The game came down to the final moments again, fulfilling the promise Game One set and at points topping it. James had 36 points on 14-for-20 shooting, adding eight rebounds to his total. He did have five turnovers, including two key turnovers late int he game. It was hardly a complete game for James despite his mastery throughout the majority of it. Ultimately it ended as a loss as the Pacers held on for a 97-93 win at American Airlines Arena in Miami on Friday night. On the other side, Paul George scored 22 points on 9-for-16 shooting and had six assists and Frank Vogel tinkered with getting Indiana into its offense quicker and getting the ball down low to Roy Hibbert and David West. The Hibbert part worked at least as the center had 29 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers. Like Game One though, this game will be remembered for the amazing plays and sequences the two teams put on seemingly back-to-back-to-back. It was nonstop action. It is a rare sight to see anybody have a moment to breathe when things get going. As LeBron James did to Paul George after the specific sequence of highlight-induced euphoria above, all you can do is offer your respects. Hopefully there are five more games just like this one.
