Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers takes place in the NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 on Sunday night with the series all square following two amazingly tight games in Miami. The series now moves to Indiana where the Pacers will be looking to get their noses in front. The game is scheduled to tip off at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
This series is quickly turning into one of the classics, with both games so far being absolutely thrilling throughout, and both have nail-biting finishes.
In Game 1, Paul George scored an amazing long-range three pointer with a fraction of a second to go in regulation to tie things level and send the game into overtime. The Heat then looked to have got themselves into a winning position, but with just 2.2 seconds left a foul meant the Pacers were able to score three free throws and move a single point ahead of Miami.
But in a dramatic final twist, LeBron James received the ball with less than two seconds to go and powered his way through the Pacers' defense to score a game-winning lay-up, beating the buzzer with literally no time left.
That breathless finish left many wondering whether Game 2 would be a let-down, and fail to live up to the amazing drama of Game 1. However, the game was just as dramatic, and saw the game swing back and forth before the Heat looked to be turning the screw in the fourth quarter.
But this time it was the Pacers' turn to snatch the game at the death, although amazingly it was LeBron James – hero just days before – who turned over the ball two times in the final minute of the game to hand Indiana the victory.
That 97-93 victory for the Pacers on the road means they return to Indiana with the series tied at 1-1 and many wondering whether the Heat can overturn the Pacers on the road.
