Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers Game 2 takes place on Friday night in the NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals, with the Pacers looking to push the Heat all the way again but hopefully this time end up on the right side of the result. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (Details below).
Game 1 was an extraordinary game for both sets of fans and neutral NBA-lovers alike. The game had everything, with the Pacers pushing the Heat all the way to overtime and to the final second.
However, despite Indiana dishing out their best they still fell just short in the 103-102 loss.
The game will be remembered for being an amazing face-off between LeBron James and the Pacers' increasingly rising star, Paul George.
George had an amazing game even by his high standards, and an extraordinary long-range three pointer scored in the final second of regulation time saw the game move to overtime. It was nothing less than the Pacers deserved after they had remained side-by-side with the home team the entire game, with nothing separating the teams.
The Heat managed to again get themselves in a winning position towards the end of the first overtime period, but a foul on George with just 2.2 seconds remaining meant that he had three foul shots with Miami just two ahead. Under amazing pressure all three were sunk putting the Pacers ahead by one with just 2.2 seconds remaining.
At that point all the Miami fans had their heads in the hands as it had looked like they have let the game be snatched from their grasp. However, with LeBron James in your side, amazing things can happen.
Very much in a "anything George can do I can do better" way, LeBron received the ball with little-to-no time left on the clock and he launched himself forward and beat the buzzer by a fraction of a second for a game-winning layup.
That final play ensure that James had the last laugh, but NBA fans everywhere were left amazed and breathless.
This series now has hugely escalated expectations, and everyone will be hoping for another amazing game tonight.
