LeBron James celebrates like a wild man during Miami Heat win over Pacers (GIF)

The Miami Heat overcame a double-digit deficit to take a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday evening and LeBron James was so excited after taking a 15-point lead after a Ray Allen bucket that he looked like he was convulsing and having a seizure.

But can you blame him after the Heat knocked off the Pacers by the score of 99-87 after such a furious comeback in an ultra-competitive game?

You have to love the unbridled enthusiasm from James, unless you’re a Pacers fan or just an all-around hater of Lebron and the Heat.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, tonight’s win for the Heat was only the 3rd time in LeBron’s career that his team overcame a deficit of 15 or more points to win a playoff game and the 2nd time this season that the Heat overcame a deficit of at least 15 points to beat the Pacers (trailed by 15 on Dec. 18).

James scored a game-high 26 points and added five rebounds and a game-high seven assists in the first game in Miami this series.
