MIAMI (AP) -- David West's right hand helped the Indiana Pacers grab home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference finals.
Roy Hibbert scored 29 points, West knocked away two passes by LeBron James for huge turnovers in the final minute, and the Pacers evened the East title series with a 97-93 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the series on Friday night.
Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel made the decision (twice) to take center Roy Hibbert out of the game on crucial plays towards the end of the Eastern Conference Finals game 1 against Miami. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to have been the wisest decision, as LeBron James was able to easily drive to the basket with 2.2 seconds left in overtime to sink the game-winner.
Three critical mistakes by Pacers.
1- Not having Hibbert in the game.
2- Paul George overplaying LeBron on the catch.
3- Not mugging LeBron as soon as made his turn toward the basket.
LeBron James also gets credit for doing things you expect the best player in the world to do. He also messed around and got a Triple-Double.
After Paul George hit three straight free throws to give the Indiana Pacers a one-point lead, it appeared that the Miami Heat were going to lose game one of the Eastern Conference Finals with only 2.2 seconds left.
That was until a great playcall from Heat coach Eric Spolestra gave LeBron James an uncontested game-winning lay-up seen below:

James finished the night with a triple double of 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. And here’s Roy...
