Indiana went 3-0 against Miami this season, with all three wins coming in overtime. The Pacers swept the season series for the third straight time but needed a furious rally down the stretch in regulation to do so.

The Heat held a 92-86 lead with less than a minute remaining in regulation but saw Pacers guard Anthony Johnson score five straight points to make it a one-point game with 29 seconds left.

"We knew it would be tough being down by six to eight points," Johnson said. "We also knew that we have three shooters -- Reggie, Stephen and I can put some up myself."

Dwyane Wade's jumper with 10 seconds to go gave Miami a 94-91 lead before Jackson got two 3-point tries on the other end, converting the second with two-tenths of a second left to force the extra session.

Jackson missed his first attempt, but Dale Davis grabbed the offensive board and passed out to Austin Croshere, who found Jackson all alone up top for the tying shot.

"I have no problem taking big shots," said Jackson, whose six 3-pointers were a high for Indiana this season. "When Dale got the rebound, Austin and I were both wide open on the weak side. When they closed on him, he did a good job of kicking it back over to me. Man, I had a great look."

"That's a game we should have won," Heat coach Stan Van Gundy said. "It came down to one play, one rebound, and then four guys standing around in the lane. Ten seconds is a long time, and if you can't play hard for 10 seconds, you don't deserve to win."

Clearly angered by his team's late-game collapse, Van Gundy offered more criticism of Miami's defense on the final play of regulation.

"Stephen Jackson and Reggie Miller killed us and we still had a chance," Van Gundy said. "We did a good job covering the last play, then it's just a rebound; get a rebound. When we didn't, we had one guy trying to close out the shooter and four guys standing and hoping we'd win. Well, we didn't."

With a second chance to keep their streak alive and strengthen their playoff positioning, the Pacers made it count. They erased a 102-98 deficit midway through OT when Johnson and Jackson hit back-to-back 3-pointers to kick off a 12-0 run.

Davis capped the burst with a pair of free throws, leaving Indiana with a 110-102 lead with 19 seconds left.

Johnson added 16 points and matched a career high with 13 assists for the Pacers (37-34), who pulled within one-half game of the Cleveland Cavaliers for sixth in the Eastern Conference standings.

"More than anything, this game was about perseverance," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle said. "At the end of regulation, we needed a miracle and got one. Stephen had a frustrating night, but hit some big shots and we hung in. It would be ridiculous to say we have some secret formula for beating these guys. We don't. We had to play a great game to give ourselves a chance."

Jackson finished 9-of-28, but was 6-of-11 from beyond the arc. Miller balanced Jackson's effort by shooting 11-of-18 and making all eight of his free throws.

Wade scored 10 of his 37 points in the extra session and Damon Jones added 27 points for Miami (54-19), which fell to 2-3 since winning 12 in a row.

"They played us tough," Wade said. "They've beaten us three tough games and this one could have went either way. It's unfortunate that it went their way. Reggie's been big in all of them, but some of his teammates have knocked down some big shots. They focus well when they play us and seem to play flawless, but we'll take anyone in a seven-game series and see who comes out on top."

The Heat allowed their late lead to vanish due to some poor foul shooting. They made just 13-of-25 free throws, compared with the Pacers' 25-of-29 effort.

Shaquille O'Neal, who scored 24 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, was 2-of-9 from the line and missed a pair with 70 seconds remaining in regulation that would have put his club up eight points.
