Last night, the Indiana Pacers managed to force a Game 6 in the Eastern Conference Finals with a 93-90 home win, but it sure wasn’t pretty. In the second quarter, Indiana was only able to get 11 points on the board, and Miami was just as cold in the third with just 15 while LeBron was benched with foul trouble. But by the fourth quarter, the action had picked up, and the win-or-go-home desperation kicked in for Indiana. Paul George (pictured) finished with 37 points, but it wasn’t just his offense that propelled Indiana as he also snatched six steals. “I just felt it. I felt in rhythm. I had to be aggressive. I tried to come out and be aggressive to start this game off and I was getting looks. I got hot,” said George on his do-it-all performance. Meanwhile, LeBron’s aforementioned fouls limited his play time and the King had just 7 points in one of his most underwhelming showings in recent memory. Next up, the series returns to Miami on Friday night where the Heat will be looking to advance to the NBA Finals and avoid a Game 7.

You’ll be able to catch all of the best shoes from Game 5, plus last night’s top MLB performers after the break.
