The Indiana Pacers have the lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Miami Heat heading into Game Two of the series. The first half of that game was all heat though, and they looked like they’d be taking a six point lead into halftime.
Pacers’ Paul George put up a three-pointer from the corner and missed it with seconds left. Roy Hibbert got the rebound and it was knocked out of bounds with 0.1 seconds left on the clock.
The announcers pointed out that the only way to score with that amount of time left in the game is to throw it at the rim and get a tip in. That is exactly the play the Pacers drew up as well.
The Pacers lobbed it into the middle of the paint in front of the rim, and Lance Stephenson went up and tapped it in. To make it even worse, is that he was right behind Heat superstar LeBron James who was distracted by Roy Hibbert.
The bucket counted and narrowed the lead.
