THE NBA PLAYOFF battle between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers has been one of the most exciting sporting stories of the last 10 days — and last night it got even better.

Needing a win to avoid elimination and keep their championship hopes alive, the Pacers beat the Heat 91-77 to force the Eastern Conference finals to a winner-takes-all Game 7.

Again, the personal tussle between MVP LeBron James (29 points last night) and the Pacers’ rising star Paul George (28 points) took centre stage. It was George who served up the evening’s highlight, putting down this filthy dunk on a helpless Chris Bosh early in the first quarter:

Game 7 is on Monday night in Miami (1:30am Tuesday BST) — ring your boss now and tell him that you won’t be in on Tuesday morning.
