Pacers frustrate Heat, force Game 7 in series

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana staggered Miami with one more big punch Saturday night.

Now the Pacers have a fighting chance to pull off a stunning playoff upset.

Roy Hibbert did everything but pull out the boxing gloves in Game 6, finishing with 24 points and 11 rebounds, and continually contesting Miami’s shots to help Indiana stave off elimination with an emphatic 91-77 victory over the defending champs.

Paul George scored 28 points, had eight rebounds and five assists, and the Pacers held Miami to 36.1 percent shooting as they booked a trip back to Miami for Game 7 on Monday night.

“Myself and David [West], we throw ourselves in the fray, in the paint. We like to muck it up,” Hibbert said.

“Paul and myself, we wanted to make sure we got this for him as well. We didn’t want this to be our last game.”
