Heat get big win over Pacers

In what was as close to a must-win as one will see in an NBA December, the Miami Heat beat the Indiana Pacers 97-94 on Wednesday night in South Florida. And it was no back-and-forth affair; Indiana opened up a big first-half margin, led by as many as 15 in the third quarter, then watched as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade -- and clutch shot hitters Chris Bosh and Ray Allen -- rallied back.

In the end, a Paul George miss -- or was he fouled? -- gave Miami a one-all tie in the head-to-head series this year. The Heat also moved to within one game of the Pacers in the Eastern Conference standings. The two rivals play each other again on March 26, April 11 and -- barring a big surprise -- in the East finals. What does the future hold?
