pacers_heat_G2_scoreboard_WPMIAMI (TSN) – The Indiana Pacers gave away a golden opportunity when their stout defense crumbled down the stretch of Game 1.

LeBron James had the chance to be a hero again on Friday, but Indiana forced the Heat superstar into back-to-back turnovers late to secure a 97-93 victory over Miami in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Roy Hibbert, who was on the bench when James provided the game-winning layup in the series opener, put fourth a dominating performance by supplying the Pacers with a team-best 29 points and 10 rebounds.

David West and George Hill each came up with steals of James in last 42 seconds of play. West totaled 13 points and seven boards while Hill chipped in 18 points in the victory.

James tallied a game-high 36 points with eight rebounds, but also had a team- worst five turnovers. The Heat had 15 giveaways as a team.

The series will shift to Indiana for Game 3 on Sunday. The Pacers have not lost on their home floor this postseason, winning all six of their contests.
