Turning point in Pacers-Heat?

With the Heat trailing the Pacers 44-40 at halftime of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron James exhorted his teammates to turn up the intensity. He then saw to that personally, accounting for 25 points in the third quarter -- scoring 16 and setting up nine more -- as Miami dominated the Pacers and took a 3-2 series lead. Will we look back on the Heat's 30-13 third quarter as the moment they swung the series?

Will the Heat's third-quarter run prove to be the turning point of the Eastern Conference finals?
