By Leo Reyes     Jun 2, 2013 in Sports
The Indiana Pacers earned another trip back to Miami for the crucial Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals after beating Miami Heat 91-77 in Game 6 in their home court.
The Pacers trailed the Heat in the first two quarters with a slim one point lead at the end of the first and second quarter. The Heat ended the first quarter with the score of 23-21 and 40-39 for the second quarter.
Heat's Lebron James led Miami's scorecard with 14 points at the end of the second half with five rebounds and four assists.
After struggling with the Heat in the first and second quarter, the Pacers surprised the Heat with quick conversions to score their biggest lead in the game of 15 points less than 3 minutes into the third quarter.
In what seems to be an insurmountable lead by the Pacers, the Heat made some adjustments after a huddle with coach Erik Spoelstra, resulting in two successive 3-point shots by Miller and cutting the lead down to six points with seven minutes remaining in the game.
But the Pacers were determined to snatch Game 6 for a chance to earn their ticket back to Miami for the Eastern Conference title.
Then Heat's final assault started to crumble after James's failed to convert a crucial basket and got an offensive foul call instead. James protested with the referee's call while Miami's assistant coach made some gestures that earned for the Pacers free shots for the technical calls.
The Heat never recovered from the unfortunate technical calls while the Pacers continued their spirited assault for the win.
Paul George of the Pacers scored a game high of 28 points while James contributed 29 points for Miami Heat.
With the victory, Indiana Pacers will collide once more with Miami Heat in Game 7 for the right to face San Antonio Spurs for the NBA season title.
