He hit 2 crucial buckets late in the game.

Also, Spoelstras coaching really should be questioned, not fouling when down 4 with 34 seconds remaining, and then not calling a time out immediately after getting the rebound. He's lucky Bosh got that look after so much time had been wasted getting it up the court, especially with Lebron tip toeing to stay inbounds after getting the rebound, wasting a few more seconds
I thought they did a perfect job in the end. The strategy payed off. They got within one. Now you are saying they got lucky? The plan was to get a stop and a quick three, save that last time-out. How is someone having and executing a plan suddenly lucky?

If Bosh had a little bit more composure on that last shot, he had more then enough time and space to hit it, would they still be lucky?

Indiana looked like crap to me. They've barley beaten Miami playing at 60% of their potential. Not saying Miami does not need to start playing better but the Pacers do not impress me.
