The people in charge of ESPN's breaking news ticker must have been confident in the three-point shooting of Chris Bosh with just seconds left on the clock last night. 

Either that or they had seen the wrong premonition of how Wednesday's Miami Heat - Indiana Pacers NBA Playoff game would end.

In the immediate aftermath of the the Pacers crucial 93-90 Game Five win Wednesday night the sports broadcaster displayed the message "Heat Back To The Finals" on the left hand side of their channel despite the fact they had the result, and series score of 3-2, displayed just above the statement.

We are pretty sure there was a very loud, and pumped up Bankers Life Filedhouse, and a huge television audience that would disagree with them.

Now we understand that in the world of television broadcasting you have to be prepared and have copy lined up ready to go when the time comes, but you just know some ESPN intern received a stern warning from their boss before the message was quickly removed.

As we all know the series now moves to Game Six back in Miami where the Heat do have a chance to secure their place in the Finals on their home court.
