Indiana Pacers forward Paul George may no longer be an emerging star. He might just be a star right now. Did you see that powerful one-handed dunk at the end of the third quarter?
And don’t forget the big man. Roy Hibbert is bringing back the NBA center position for these playoffs.
George had 22 points and six assists and Hibbert added 29 points and 10 rebounds as the Pacers defeated the Miami Heat 97-93 on Friday and tied the Eastern Conference finals at 1-1.
“Again, we have a great deal of confidence that we can beat this basketball team” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said before Game 2.
The Pacers maintained the confidence even after a crushing Game 1 overtime loss and now go home for the next two games of what is shaping up as an excellent, competitive, down-to-the-final-minute series.
“That was a heck of a basketball game, wasn’t it?” Vogel said before answering a question at his post-game news conference.
He later added, “It was one of the best basketball games I’ve ever been a part of.”
