NBA Playoffs 2014: Miami Heat take 2-1 lead over Indiana (VIDEO)


The Miami Heat were down 15 in the second quarter. Things began to look grim for the back-to-back defending NBA Champion Heat.

Soon enough, though, the Miami Heat realized (and remembered) that they were the Miami Heat again.

Two quarters later, the Heat had taken a 2-1 series lead after a 99-87 Game 3 victory in South Beach. LeBron James scored 26 points, Dwyane Wade added 23 and Ray Allen poured in 16 points (all in the second half) on a perfect 4-for-4 shooting from three.

Miami trailed 37-22 (in the second quarter) before outscoring Indiana 77-50 the rest of the way.

By the end of the game, LeBron was fired up. To say the least.

The series will continue on Monday night in Miami for Game 4, when the Pacers looked to square the series before heading back to Indiana.

Here are the complete video highlights:
