Watch LeBron James, Dwyane Wade take over fourth quarter (VIDEO)

May 21, 2014, 8:56 AM EDT

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 can do that because they have LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

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.

    I haven’t seen a single Pacer fan in any game 2 comment sections lol

      All of them are heading for the exits.

        “For all those guys who left, don’t come back for Game 7. People gave up on us, and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home.” – Chris Bosh

        Heat fans sure do have short memories. Alzheimers?

    The Heat won’t lose if Wade plays that well.

    Wade has been my favorite player since entering the league. Yup pre-lebron Heat fan here (more of us out there than ppl think). When he’s locked in like that your not going to stop him. Sure we all know about his knee issues over the year. But your are lying to yourself if you don’t say he isn’t one of the top shooting guards to play the game. Keep up the smart basketball plays and IND doesn’t have a chance.

    Typical Pacer fan behavior. Game goes south? Head for the exits.
    Lance had a good game though.

      He’s a hell of a player…he just makes it impossible to like him.

    Maybe if George had been a little less worried about crying to the ref that LeBron fouled him on that strip, and more worried about getting back on defense, he would have been in position for when LeBron missed that layup. Instead, Wade was there for the put back back-breaking dunk that basically sealed the game.

    Wade is healthy, and as I said earlier; no one will beat the Heat if Wade is 100% healthy in the playoffs.

    And lol at the Pacers fans leaving early AGAIN.

    I`m always amazed how serious some take the NBA/WWE.I posted right after game 1 what would happen game 2.Heat will win game 3 and then Joey Crawfords crew will be in south beach for game 4 and then it will be a best of 3.No way the series doesn`t go at least 6 games with the ratings their getting.Gambling on the NBA is like taking candy from a baby.

    I always think it’s hilarious when Pacers fans chant “he’s a flopper!” as if Lance Stephenson and Paul George aren’t some of the worst in the NBA. Any time you get near Lance Stephenson his head flails around like a bobble head

  9. johnc44 - May 21, 2014 at 1:47 PM

    Kind of like when Lebron came off the screen ran into West and fell out of bounds like he was shot?Or the foul at the basket were he dove under the chairs like he was pushed?
    Stephenson is trying to reach their level but he`s not near there yet.Only Chris Paul can challenge Lebron or Wade for that title but honestly players have to do it or calls don`t get made.

    • buffalowned - May 21, 2014 at 1:54 PM

      I agree everyone does it..and why wouldn’t they? But if you think Stephenson is not on Lebron’s level you must be a Pacers fan or not watch basketball that often. Those head bobbles are just awful..you have to at least make it look like contact was possible to make that happen. Nice to see the refs ignoring it last night.

      • johnc44 - May 21, 2014 at 2:09 PM

        And you must be a Heat fan because Lance falls down (not as much as Hibbert but that`s not flopping he just falls down a lot) but Lebron flies like he`s shot out of a cannon and when most guys couldn`t knock him down with a sledge hammer.

      • buffalowned - May 21, 2014 at 4:11 PM

        johnc see article on Lance Stephenson fined for flopping

    Wade has just been very accurate in these playoffs – a guard shooting 53% is out of this world. And LeBron is shooting 56%, so those two are going to be very hard to stop. The Heat are going to have themselves a blowout if Bosh would just show up one of these games.
