End of Game
Ray Allen and Shane Battier have not shot well against the Pacers this season, especially on three-pointers. They are just a combined 1-12 this postseason on three-pointers after struggling in the regular season as well.
Roy Hibbert scored a postseason career-high 20 paint points in Game 2, with 5 of his 10 paint field goals as the pick-and-roll man. Hibbert finished with 14 points while rolling to the basket Friday (1.8 PPG this postseason entering Friday), including 2 field goals in the final 5 minutes of the 4th quarter.
LeBron James was 10-of-14 shooting against Paul George in Game 2 with 25 points, but was unable to score against him in the final 2:43. Meanwhile, George was 6-of-7 shooting against James with 16 points Friday, and has scored more efficiently against James in the series.
The Heat shot 8-of-21 on drives to the basket in Game 2 with Roy Hibbert on the court, and 4-of-5 while he was on the bench. Miami has been much more efficient on drives with Hibbert off the court, scoring 28 points in 21 minutes.
LeBron James turned the ball over while driving into the paint with 8 seconds remaining. James has as many turnovers (4) as points scored on drives to the basket with Hibbert on the court in the series. James is 4-of-5 on drives with Hibbert off the court.
From Elias: Roy Hibbert: 2nd player in Pacers history with at least 29 points and 10 rebounds in a postseason game. Jermaine O'Neal did it twice-- 2002 and 2006.
