It’s seems far away from the time the series was 2-1 and in control of the Indiana Pacers,
basically because of the way the Miami Heat has handled the last two games, smashing
Indiana with no mercy. Miami will try to end this series and move on when they visit the
Pacers on Tuesday at 8 PM ET.
LeBron James scored 30 points, Dwyane Wade added 28, and the Heat moved to be one
win away from the NBA’s final four with a 115-83 victory on Tuesday night. James added 10
rebounds and eight assists, but the most important thing was the help from the rest of the
cast as Shane Battier scored 13 points, Mario Chalmers had eight points and 11 rebounds, and
Udonis Haslem finished with 10 points for Miami.
“This is our challenge right now, to leave it behind us,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “A lot of
good things tonight, but we have to focus on the next one.”
Indiana lost control of the game in the last two minutes right before halftime, since
then, there’s was not looking back for the Heat; Miami outscored Indiana by 23 points in the
second half alone.
To make it worst Danny Granger left the game with a collarbone problem, and David West had
to sit out in the fourth quarter because of a knee issue. “I don’t know if that was retaliation. …
I’m sure the NBA will and do what they have to do,” Granger said, adding that Stephenson got
X-rays for a possible collarbone problem, but they came back negative for a fracture.
“I can’t believe my team went soft. S-O-F-T,” Pacers president Larry Bird told the Indianapolis
Star. “I’m disappointed. I never thought it would happen.”
