With three minutes to go in regulation, the Pacers ramped up the defense to make a run at the win which should've been enough to secure the W but for a few missed free throws by George Hill and a vapor lock foul by Paul George giving the Cavs a three-point play, forced the overtime. Fortunately, the Pacers took care of business in the free basketball time with Danny Granger knocking down a couple of key jumpers and George Hill coming through with a dagger three of his own.
