In Game 2, Chris "Birdman" Andersen finished with a team-high plus/minus of plus-25 in 29 minutes of action. He produced 12 rebounds, which went a long way to help Miami close the gap on the glass that saw them demolished in Game 1.
For the Pacers in Game 2, Paul George recorded 4-of-16 shooting and 14 points, where as David West posted 5-of-16 shooting and 10 points. The pair definitely struggled out there and could not find their rhythm at all.
