Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
The heat is on. Last Tuesday night offered Indiana the chance to put the reigning back-to-back NBA champs in a 0-2 hole and another title in serious jeopardy. Lance Stephenson tied his playoff career high with 25 points and Paul George scored 14 for the Pacers, but it was not enough to to hold off the Heat.
Two days after allowing 107 points to the Pacers, Indiana's highest point total of the postseason, Miami held Indiana to just nine points over a 10-minute stretch in the first half. The Heat closed the game by giving up just 10 points in the final minutes. LeBron James scored six in a remarkable 12-2 run, and combined with Dwayne Wade for Miami's final 20 points in an 87-83 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
Wade had 13 points in the Heat's 41-point first half and scored his final 10 in the fourth quarter alone. James, who finished with 22 points, also supplied 12 in the fourth. The two superstars helped Miami avoid a 0-2 deficit for the first time since the first round of the 2010 playoffs. The series now shifts back to Miami for Game 3 on Saturday May 24 and Game 4 on Monday May 26, 2014.

Despite settling for the number two seed in the Eastern Conference for the third time in four years, the two-time defending champion Miami Heat remain the popular pick to return to the NBA Finals this June.
At the start of the 2010-2011 season, the “big three” in Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh caused tidal waves in the NBA and charged their way to The Finals after winning 58 games in the regular season.
Though they lost, the Heat returned to earn two consecutive NBA titles in 2012 and 2013, along with numerous franchise and league records. The Heat remain a merciless force in the postseason and are thirsty for a fourth straight trip to the Finals and third consecutive championship.
The 2014 NBA playoffs tipped off in May and will continue through mid-to late June with the conclusion of the 2014 NBA Finals. The Finals are currently set to begin on Thursday, June 5, 2014.
The Eastern Conference/Division leads the Western Conference/Division in series won (37–29). The defunct Central Division won one championship. The Boston Celtics and the Minneapolis/Los Angeles Lakers own almost half of the titles, having won a combined 33 of 67 championships. The two-time defending champion Miami Heat lost in the finals to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 and defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2012 and San Antonio Spurs in 2013.
