Paul George went off for 37 points with six rebounds, two assists, and six steals as the Pacers avoid elimination with the Game 5 victory over the Heat.
The 37 points is impressive in itself, but even more impressive is that 21 of them came in the fourth quarter, which is the most ever scored in any quarter against the Heat in franchise history. The Pacers will look to carry over the momentum from Wednesday's win as they hope to tie up the series at three games apiece, and avoid elimination for the second consecutive game, when the two teams meet on Friday for Game 6 in Miami.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
