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
