Pacers Final Score: Pacers topple Heat 91-77 to force Game 7

The Indiana Pacers controlled the second half to tie series 3-3.

Ronald Martinez

The Indiana Pacers very nearly found themselves in a similar position as Game 5, blowing numerous opportunities in the first half, trailing when they should be up big. Indiana had really controlled the game in the first half, but their missed layups and dunks were combined with Miami's hot three point shooting, but whatever the conversation in the locker room, the Pacers came out and put the hurt on the Heat, outscoring Miami 29-15 in the third quarter.

Miami made a run with a pair of Mike Miller threes to cut their 17 point lead to four, but Indiana responded with a 9-0 run to close out the Heat and force a Game 7 in Miami. The talk of the game will almost certainly be on LeBron James's drive to the basket, when his elbow hitting Roy Hibbert resulted in an offensive foul and two technical fouls on Miami. James finished up with 29 points, but had four turnovers and got very little help from his teammates, as Mario Chalmers and Dwyane Wade only reached ten.

For the Pacers, Paul George had 28 points and Roy Hibbert had 24 points. Hibbert also had 11 rebounds as part of three Pacers to reach double figure rebounds, with Indiana dominating the glass 53-33 and points in the paint 44-22.
