Paul George dunks, LeBron answers with three in wild end to third quarter (VIDEO)

May 24, 2013, 11:11 PM EDT

This series is so much fun.

Paul George just absolutely crushed the Birdman Chris Andersen with a dunk. Just crushed him.

LeBron James comes back down and drains a three.

Then a little hand slap at midcourt. Respect.

These are two teams standing toe-to-two trading blows, and most teams wither when they do that with the Heat. Not the Pacers.

I just want this series to drag out six or seven games because it is so much fun to watch.

    The Pacers are going to win this series because Lechoke and the heat come up small in big games.There is no way Lechoke is as good as MJ.Mj was clutch in big games.

        You’re giving him more room than me. I was about to say, guy sounds like a 6 year old.

      I freakin’ hate when people make premature predictions. Just stop. Show some respect, and I’m not even a LeBron fan.

    DAMMMNN P George, you didn’t have too do that to him!! That was just …………FILTHY!!! Made the Birdman look like the Turdman!!!

    After seeing Birdman play so well, it’s nice to see that he’s human, and PG put him in his place. Makin’ the hometown proud PG. Keep it coming.

    This is why PG24 is my favourite player

    And Miami sheds a tear, Lebron couldn’t flop the win……

  11. bougin89 - May 24, 2013 at 11:57 PM

    Lebron isn’t a lockdown defender. He’s probably the best help defender in the league but he doesn’t shut down one player man on man. He also doesn’t guard “all 5 positions”. That doesn’t mean he isn’t a very good defensive player.

    • erckle31 - May 25, 2013 at 12:20 AM

      I’m no Lebron fan, but who would you think is the best one on one defender in the league? I think it’s hands down Tony Allen.

      • bougin89 - May 25, 2013 at 10:56 AM

        Tony Allen definitely has to be in the discussion. Iguodala would also have to be in the mix.

      • davidly - May 25, 2013 at 1:26 PM

        You’ll probably think I’m high on the pot, but I still think it’s TDFKARA.

      • borderline1988 - May 25, 2013 at 10:33 PM

        One on one wing/guard defenders don’t matter as much, b/c with the skill of today’s guards and the NBA rules on hand-checking, any elite guard can blow by any defender. Also, basic pick and rolls can negate the ball-handler’s defender anyways.

        The defensive skill of help defenders, and especially the defensive skill of a pick-man’s defender in hedging out ballhandlers is more important than any one defender.

        Not to take anything away from the likes of Tony Allen, Iguadala, Avery Bradley, etc…they are the best at what they do. It’s just in an open court, those players would all get left in the dust by elite guards.

        The best team defenses are the ones where the ballhandler’s defender is backed up by good help defender’s, and agile big men who can clog the paint. In those cases, it allows the ballhandler’s defender to play the ballhandler aggressively, and force him into tougher jumpshots which are inefficient.
        Tony Allen’s aggressiveness is backed up by Gasol. Bradley’s aggressiveness is backed up by Garnett. Don’t underestimate what Gasol and Garnett mean to how good Allen and Bradley look on defense.

    Hell of a dunk by, Paul George… I take nothing from the athleticism he displayed on that play; however, David West should get an assist on the play, because he clearly shoved Birdman in the back right as he was leaping to attempt the block. You cannot deny that! West is a strong man… I wondered why Birdman looked off balance and damn near under the rim by the time Paul George got to him… I’m not saying, George would not have completed it, but he clearly had a helping hand from his boy to raise the percentage in his direction… If anybody disagrees, is honestly just a complete moron. Nonetheless, nice 1, Paul George

    This ECF is as good as basketball gets. These guys are leaving everything on the floor. When George dropped that hammer I damn near made my building shake. Then Bron splashes the open 3 and my neighbor did the same thing. If you’re not watching, you don’t like basketball
