After all of the chaos -- Paul George's clutch shot, LeBron's buzzer beater, the flopping and the profane press confereces -- the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers meet one more time in Game 7 to see who will take on the rested San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.

"Each and every year there are 30 teams that would love to be a part of this, to have one game to advance to the NBA Finals," James said before the final game of the Eastern Conference finals, via the Associated Press. "And there's two teams that's in this position. And it's something that you can't substitute, this feeling. You can't substitute the atmosphere that we're going to be in on Monday night for both teams. We should all cherish this moment."

While James has been in MVP form during the postseason, he hasn't had much help from the other two members of Miami's Big Three in recent games. LeBron has outscored Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined four times against Indiana and the Heat are just 1-3 in those games.

Will Roy Hibbert, David West and George be able to shut down Miami one more time? Or will LeBron lead the Heat to the NBA Finals for the third year in a row?
