Paul George went off and scored 31 of his 37 points in the second half of Game 5 to stave off elimination, pulling his Pacers past the Miami Heat 93-90 on Wednesday night.
Miami still leads the Eastern Conference Finals 3-2. Game 6 is Friday in Miami.
LeBron James, who battled through foul trouble throughout the night, finished with seven points, four assists and two rebounds. It wasn’t his best game, to say the least.
Still, in the end, the Heat had a chance. Though, a Chris Bosh missed corner-three is what will force a Game 6 on Friday. Indiana lives to die another day.
Here are some of the postgame highlights from Game 5:
The Pacers finally took it to another level. It took them only five games.
LeBron didn’t have a great game.
Yea…Paul George was insanely good last night.
Not everyone is going to love the look that Chris Bosh got at the end of the game, but Miami will live with it seven days a week.
Did I mention that Paul George was really good in Game 5?
Miami didn’t get to the line all too much, but they still outplayed the Pacers. Right, Paul George?

And lastly, LeBron.
Game 6 will be important. The again, so should every game in the ECF.
LeBron on his decision on the Heat’s final possession.
It’s been a few hours after Game 5 and Stephenson still hasn’t said anything stupid. Good sign.

George stating the obvious. He was insane.
Looking to Game 6, George is expecting LeBron to be LeBron again.
And we’ll round out the night with an insane stat. The Pacers were insanely good down the stretch, mostly thanks to George.
