It was the breath of semi-fresh air the Indiana Pacers needed to seal a win.
Near the end of game 5 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals, the Pacers had a slim lead over the Miami Heat. The reigning NBA champions were up 3-1 and looking for a trip to the championship.
During a stoppage point in the game, Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson leaned into face of LeBron James and gently blew in his ear. The moment, and James’s reaction, were priceless.
It was also exactly what the Pacers needed.
The Pacers ended up winning the game 93-90, staving off elimination.
