The Miami Heat’s road to a third straight NBA Finals may have hit a serious road block. The road block comes in form of the rugged Indiana Pacers that feature 7’2 Roy Hibbert in the middle and budding superstar, Paul George. After a heartbreaking Game 1 loss, the Pacers bounced back with a big victory in Game 2 that saw two uncharacteristic turnovers in the clutch by LeBron James.
George Hill was asked after the game if there was anything scarier than LeBron James having the ball in his hands and a chance to win the game. Hill’s response may surprise some people as he skipped choosing any human life, instead going straight to the big fella upstairs.

“It’s only like one person that’s more scarier than that and that’s God,” Hill said. “I’m sure if we were looking at Him in the face we would be very nervous. I’m sure He could make all the plays that we want people to make. LeBron is a great player, he’s the MVP for a reason, he’s one of the best to ever play this game. He’s a big focal point. We know that when he’s up there probing the floor and looking at everything that we can’t just focus on him, we have to focus on the people around him, because he’s a great play-maker. He has our full attention.”
Maybe Hill should check out some tape on a dude named Michael Jordan. From what I hear he was a pretty good clutch performer in his own right. Not to crush LeBron, but did Jordan ever have two last-minute turnovers in an Eastern Conference playoff game? Nevertheless, we should be in for an epic series with these two teams.
