INDIANAPOLIS (AP) LeBron James scored six straight points to spark the decisive 12-2 run, and the Miami Heat beat the Indiana Pacers 87-83 on Tuesday night to leave the Eastern Conference finals tied at a game apiece.

James had 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. Dwyane Wade had 23 points, 13 in the first half when the Heat desperately needed them to stay close.

Game 3 is Saturday in Miami.

Lance Stephenson had 25 points for the Pacers, and Paul George scored 14.

Miami trailed 73-69 with 7:19 left. But James hit a 3-pointer, and then scored the first six points in the rally and the Heat defense gave up only eight points over the final five minutes.
