Indiana Pacers forward David West had the plays sniffed out, like a police canine searching for the loot.
Sniffed out were West’s words — four times he said it — as if he knew exactly what LeBron James was going to do on two game-deciding plays with less than a minute to play in the Pacers’ 97-93 victory in Game 2 on Friday evening the Eastern Conference finals at 1-1.
West forced two steals and prevented the Heat from attempting two potential game-tying or go-ahead shots.
The turnovers were uncharacteristic of James, but the steals were typical of the Pacers’ impressive, smart and physical defense.
“The right way to describe David West’s performance tonight and most of the time in Indiana is will,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “He has incredible, incredible will to do whatever it takes to win a basketball game.”
