LeBron James had 24 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a 3-pointer, and Ray Allen hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with just under a minute left as the Heat used a late 10-0 run to beat the Pacers 97-94.
The Heat were down as much as 15 points, and Chris Bosh also hit a big 3-pointer to help the Heat make the furious comeback. Paul George battled well with LeBron, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers, but missed an awkward floater late, as well as a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer. He felt like he was fouled by LeBron on the play, and it's hard to argue with him after seeing replays. The season series is now tied at 1-1 and the two teams don't meet again until March, and then again in April. As for LeBron's ankle injury, it clearly wasn't a problem tonight and we expect to see him again on Friday against the Kings, assuming he feels OK when he wakes up on Thursday.
