The stage was set for a repeat of Game 5. You know, missed shots from point blank in the lane, missed free throws and head scratching turnovers.

The Indiana Pacers, the team supposedly desperate to force a Game 7, were doing their best to have their season conclude on Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Then it happened.

It being the run, the determination and toughness expected at the start of the game.

The Pacers came out of the locker room at halftime and played like they were supposed to, and now they’re headed back to Miami for the biggest game of their careers.

The Pacers used a huge third quarter to beat the Heat 91-77 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in front of a sellout crowd on Saturday.

The best-of-seven series is tied at 3-3. Game 7 is in Miami on Monday.
