07:12 AM ET 05.29 | If the Pacers are under the skin of LeBron James, Lance Stephenson may have a lot to do with it. Aggression comes naturally to the third-year guard. Stephenson scored 20 points to help the Pacers beat the Miami Heat 99-92 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to square the Eastern Conference finals at two games each. He also had several deflections, five rebounds, a pair of assists and a variety of difference-making plays that didn't get into the box score. And with Paul George in foul trouble, he took his defensive turns on [James]. "He asked to guard him," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "He's a competitor. We know Paul is getting worn out a little bit guarding LeBron the whole game that he's in there. "Lance said, 'Let me share some of the load.'"

Stephenson was a big difference last night. He and Hill actually showed up. George is not a superstar period. One game does not make you a superstar. George needs to start showing up.

How could they seriously botch that call where it hit the rim and they called shot clock violation. It was OBVIOUS it hit the rim.

Hit the rim twice. The Heat went on a 10-0 run after that. Big momentum change. The clock person effed up on that one too.

I mean its not like those shots that look like airballs and they graze the rim, it was plain as day. Miami was starting to fade and Hibbert had just grabbed another rebound and was about to get another easy two.

if it were miami who missed....they'd have gone to replay.I mean all joking aside- it is complete biasnessthey ALWAYS review things that end up going in miami's favorand NEVER review possibly indy ones

I agree with you, you simply can't do that, you can't screw a team like that and be the catalyst for a 10-0 run the other way.
