New, comments

Miami pulled out all the stops in the absence of Hassan Whiteside, closing regulation with a Dwyane Wade buzzer beater and a just-good-enough overtime to clear the Pacers.

First Star

Chris Bosh (MIA) 24.2

Bosh earned his 23rd star of the season, and his team-best sixth First Star with a team-high 31 points on the night. He sank eight-for-20 from the floor, including two-of-six from outside. He also earned 13 of his points at the line, in 16 tries. Bosh added 11 rebounds (also a team-high) with an assist, a steal, a block, and a plus-2 rating which ranked highest amongst Miami's starters over a game-high 41:56.

I was joking with PG, just telling him how it was old times. - Bosh

Second Star

Paul George (IND) 21.6

George led the Pacers with 41:30, scoring a game-high 32 points on 12-of-29 shooting. He made three-of-four from the stripe and five-of-13 from deep, with seven rebounds, two steals, two assists, and a team-second-best plus-11 rating.

I had a good enough look - George, on missing the final shot in overtime.

Third Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 20.0

Wade makes his 20th appearance in the series with his third time at the Third Star, scoring 27 points in 37:49 on the floor. Wade made nine-of-22 shots (including a buzzer-beating layup) and nine-of-10 from the foul line, with eight rebounds, three assists, a block and an even rating.

It felt like a playoff game. So I'm glad we found a way to pull it out. - Wade

Fourth Star

Monta Ellis (IND) 12.7

Ellis played 41:03 in total, scoring 17 points on eight-of-17 shooting which included a modest one-for-three from outside and a single missed foul shot in his only attempt. He dished out a game-high nine helpers, with three rebounds and a plus-5 rating.
