Bosh shoots an airball on the final play as Pacers burn the Heat in a classic

These two really don’t like each other — but that’s fine with us.

IF YOU NEED something to whet your appetite ahead of the NBA Playoffs, last night’s duel between the Pacers and the Heat should do the trick.

These two played out a seven-game epic in the conference finals last year and the drama continued on Wednesday as the Pacers came from seven points down in the final quarter to win by one, 84-83.

The game was decided by this play, a Chris Bosh airball from the edge of the key that could have snatched the win for Miami right on the buzzer.


There was no shortage of highlights in a niggly game that saw LeBron James finish with 38 points but Paul George (23) and Roy Hibbert (21) combine for 44 for Indiana.

How about this drive and dunk by George on Lebron, presented in glorious slo-mo?

It wasn’t all quite so pretty. Here’s LeBron elbowing Hibbert in the face as he drove to the rim while Miami still led midway through the fourth:
