The Indiana Pacers dominated the Atlanta Hawks during the second quarter of Saturday's Game 7, closing the first half on an 18-4 run.

But it was backup center Ian Mahinmi who stole the show by emphatically swatting Hawks point guard Jeff Teague at the rim as time expired. 

The block capped off a nine-and-a-half-minute stretch that saw the Hawks shoot 1-of-15 from the floor as the Pacers took a 47-36 lead into the locker room.
