Pacers Prevail, Beat Heat in Game 1 of East Finals
(INDIANAPOLIS) -- The Indiana Pacers have the Miami Heat figured out for one game at least after their 107-96 win in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday.
Paul George led the way for Indiana with 24 points and seven assists and both David West and Roy Hibbert added 19 in the victory.
"There's nothing to celebrate. It's not like we won a championship. It's one game," Hill said. "Yes, it was good, but if we come out and lay an egg on Tuesday, this game doesn't mean anything."
The Pacers had a 19 point lead late in the third and entered the fourth up by 13. West's layup gave Indiana 100-84 lead with 5:07 left.
Dwyane Wade scored 27 and LeBron James had 25 in the loss. Chris Bosh was held to nine points and two rebounds.
"The game's still so fresh. It's too hard to just say, `Well, we need to do this better in Game 2," James said after the Heat lost for just the second time in 10 playoff games. "We need to evaluate our mistakes and things we did in Game 1 first before I can say what we need to bring to Game 2."
