INDIANAPOLIS -- LeBron James and Dwyane Wade followed the same old script Tuesday night. Air Max 270 Bowfin Canada . When Miami got into trouble, the All-Star duo bailed out the Heat. Again. James scored the first six points in a decisive 12-2 run, and combined with Wade for Miamis final 20 points in an 87-83 victory over the Indiana Pacers that left the Eastern Conference final tied at a game apiece. "Thats why theyre the hundred million dollar guys," teammate Norris Cole said. "Theyre unstoppable. They make the game easy for everyone else when theyre in attack mode." Thats exactly how the money guys played during the final 12 minutes. Wade, who had 13 points in the Heats 41-point first half, scored his final 10 in the fourth. James, who finished with 22 points, had 12 in the fourth. Together they helped Miami avoid falling into a 2-0 deficit for the first time since the first round of the 2010 playoffs. Lance Stephenson tied his playoff career high with 25 points for the Pacers. Paul George scored 14. Now the series shifts back to Miami for Game 3 on Saturday and Game 4 on Monday. This one had a different feel compared to a couple of Miamis important games in the 2013 post-season. A year ago in Game 7 at Miami, the Heats money players overwhelmed Indiana 99-76. Then, after losing Game 1 in the finals to San Antonio, James, Wade and Chris Bosh helped Miami storm back for a 19-point win. On Tuesday, the Pacers were in a strong position midway through the fourth before James and Wade helped Miami seize the home-court advantage Indiana so desperately wanted for this series. Miami has won 11 straight games following a playoff loss. "Its not going to be pretty. Not in the Eastern Conference," James said. "Its never pretty basketball in the Eastern Conference. Its about who can sustain runs. You know, who can get defensive stops? Who can not turn the ball over and who can get great shots? I think we did that in the fourth." At times, the rough-and-tumble night took on the aura of a football game, especially late. When George and Wade collided chasing a loose ball, both came up grimacing. Wade held his left knee. George also grabbed at his knee though he said afterward he had blurred vision and may have blacked out. Coach Frank Vogel would not confirm Georges description. Another time, James crashed hard to the floor when David West was called for a flagrant one foul in the fourth quarter, which was changed to a common foul following a replay review. There were hard picks, tight defence and James and Wade back in their old groove. The Pacers expected all of it in this title bout. They just couldnt finish it off. "We were winning the whole night," guard George Hill said. "We controlled the whole game until the last couple minutes." But two days after allowing the Pacers to score 107 points, Indianas highest total of the post-season, Miami held Indiana to nine points over a 10-minute stretch in the first half and closed it out with by allowing just 10 points over the final 7:19. "Today it was just about how bad we wanted it," Wade said. "It wasnt about Xs and Os. It wasnt a perfect game by no stretch of the imagination. We kept digging down deep, and we got back to Miami Heat basketball." Even the Heat acknowledged they were in trouble Tuesday after Indiana used a 10-2 third-quarter run to retake a 47-45 lead, and then extended the margin to 63-56 with 2:07 left in the third quarter. James closed out the quarter by finding Bosh and Cole for open 3-pointers to make it 63-62. George hit a 29-footer to make it 73-69 with 7:19 left. But James and Wade stepped up again. James hit a 3 to make it a one-point game, and after Roy Hibbert made a 6-foot hook shot, James scored six straight to start the decisive 12-2 run that sealed the win. "We have no idea were doing that until after the game," James said. "Were just going to make the right play for our team. Tonight was one of those nights."

A training camp in Cleveland came and went without the undersized wide receiver earning a spot on the 53-man roster. The finish line wasnt in sight, but the horizon was approaching.Then the phone rang. The rebuilding New Orleans Saints had an open spot on the practice squad and a need for playmakers, even if the 5-foot-9 Moore didnt exactly fit the mould.They gave me a chance when nobody was really giving me a chance, Moore said.The marriage lasted nearly a decade. Moore repaid New Orleans confidence with nine productive seasons, catching 346 passes — the fifth-most in team history — while helping the beleaguered franchise to its only Super Bowl title.Moore never wanted to leave. Yet he understands the reality. After injuries slowed him in 2013, Moore knew his $2.5 million salary was a luxury the Saints no longer wanted to afford. When the phone rang to say goodbye, Moore didnt complain. How could he have known back in 2005 hed stick around this long?I have a special place in my heart for that organization, Moore said. Things didnt end there the way I wanted to but its a business first and foremost and I understand that. I definitely have love for them.Moore has to push that fondness off to the side on Sunday when the enigmatic Saints (4-7) visit Moore and the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-4), who scooped up the 31-year-old veteran two weeks after New Orleans let him go. Though Moore is on pace for the fewest receptions in a season since he became a regular in 2007 — hes won over his new teammates with his attention to detail.He can do a little bit of everything, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said.Originally slated to take over the slot position left by the departure of Jerricho Cotchery, Moore has found himself as the football equivalent of duct tape. If theres a need on a given play, the Steelers will find a way to make him fit.Hes a low maintenance guy, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. Hes extremely professional. Hes smart. He comes with good ideas. He knows all of the positions. Hes very versatile in that way and weve had to utilize him in that way because he is playing with some young people.Moore is less vital part than accessory these days, but he can live with the trade-off. Pittsburgh is winning, which is the main reason he chose to sign a two-year deal with thee Steelers in March. Air Max Thea Canada. His numbers might have been better somewhere else, but hes long since passed the time where ego played a factor in his decision-making.Mention to Moore the Saints have struggled without him and he offers a quick correction.Its not all about me, he said. I wasnt the only guy that was there last year that is not there this year. Theres a bunch of guys that arent there. I never wish a lack of success on them. Theres a lot of my friends there. I want to see them do well.Just not on Sunday. Moore spent the early part of the week giving the Steeler wide receivers a thorough rundown of the leaky New Orleans secondary, which is 27th in the league against the pass. Tomlin called Moore a minor resource, which may be understating it a bit. Moore caught hundreds of passes from Drew Brees, probing defences for soft spots and finding ways to fit into tight spaces.While Moore doesnt know the Saints offence as well as Brees, the gap is narrower than most think.He was extremely intelligent, great football I.Q., Brees said. Just so smooth. Just knew how it was supposed to look, knew how it was supposed to feel.The fit hasnt been quite as snug in Pittsburgh. Moore dealt with a balky hamstring at the end of training camp and lost the starting slot receiver job to Justin Brown. He scored a meaningless touchdown in a loss to Cleveland but added an important 3-yard score in a Monday night victory over Houston that kickstarted the Steelers current 4-1 stretch.Moore admits he has no clue how hell be used during a given week. The emergence of rookie Martavis Bryant has further jumbled an already crowded picture. The competitor in Moore wants to be on the field. The realist knows its out of his reliable hands.In a way, Moore is back where he started. He was a graduate assistant at Toledo when the Saints reached out back in 2005. Hes taken on a similar role for receiving group where hes the elder statesmen. Hes fine with the arrangement so long as Sunday ends with the Steelers inching closer to their first playoff berth in three years.I want to win, Moore said. Im not going to try to be Superman on Sunday, nor should anybody else.NOTES: Bryant (illness) did not practice on Wednesday. ... Tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) were limited.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
