Indiana Pacers beat Miami Heat 91-77 in game six of the Eastern Conference Finals to force a decider.

The Heat won Friday's fifth game meaning they only needed one more win to be sure of winning the Eastern Conference but a Pacers performance inspired by Paul George means the two sides will battle it out in a decider on Tuesday.

George scored 28 points for the Pacers to ensure they took the series back to Miami and even LeBron James' 29 points could not stop the Indiana side.

After winning their first division title in nine years, the Pacers are now just one win away from advancing to the NBA Finals for only the second time in their history.

The previous time came 13 years ago when they lost to the LA Lakers 4-2. They haven't actually played a decisive seventh game in the conference finals since losing to Chicago two years previous to that.

They have forced the seventh game despite facing the defending champions who won 27 straight during the regular season.

The Heat also finished the regular season with a franchise-record 66 wins and won 23 of their last 24 road games before losing Games Four and Six in Indianapolis.
