The Indiana Pacers defeated the Miami Heat 78-75 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, tying the series at 1. The Pacers had four players score in double-figures, led by forward David West’s 16 points and 10 rebounds. Guard George Hill added 15 points while Danny Granger contributed 10 and Paul George 10. Heat forward LeBron James led all scorers with 28 points and Dwyane Wade finished with 24, but it wasn’t enough. Miami was playing without forward Chris Bosh (stomach), and received little help from the supporting cast. LeBron was running on fumes by the end and missed two key free throws that could have changed the course of the game. “The game is not lost or won with two free throws. But I definitely want to come through for my teammates. So I’ll get an opportunity again. I know I’ll be at the line again in that situation. Just go up and make ’em.”
