This is what makes the Miami Heat so difficult to beat — you play them even, scrap with them, make some plays and it’s close for 42 minutes, then in the span of a couple of minutes they force some turnovers, get a few transition buckets, go on a quick 10-0 run and suddenly you are too far back to catch up.
Miami did that to the Indiana Pacers in Game 2, playing a Pacers-style grinding game and the Heat were down 3 with 5:00 left when LeBron and Wade took over, sparked a 10-0 run and scored the Heat’s final 15 points.
The result? A Miami win that evens the series.
LeBron and Wade have done that to a lot of teams over the past four years.
