Eastern Conference Finals 2014: Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers exchange air balls (video)

Since the Miami Heat took down the Indiana Pacers in game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals last year, both the players and fans alike have been waiting for the rematch.

Although both teams went through their rough patches and the Pacers looked awful down the stretch, they seemed to have gotten things together, taking down the Heat 107-96 in game 1 to take the early lead in the series on Sunday afternoon.

On Tuesday night, the two teams are battling again.

The Heat have one of the best players of all time in LeBron James, along with another certain Hall-of-Famer, Dwyane Wade and a probable Hall-of-Famer, Chris Bosh. The Pacers are led by an elite player in Paul George, the league’s top defense and probably the deepest team in the league, meaning quality basketball is expected most of the time.

That, however, is not always the case. During the first quarter of game 2, the teams suffered embarrassing situations on back-to-back possessions.

First, one of the great shooters of all time, Ray Allen air-balled a three-pointer. The Pacers got the rebound and charged down the floor, finding reserve point guard C.J. Watson for an open three. Just like Allen, Watson couldn’t find the rim. You can see video of the play below.
