LeBron, DWade, Bosh and the Heat crew are in the NBA Finals for the third straight season, defeating the upstart Pacers, 99-76, in Game 7. LeBron was again LeBron, turning in 32 points to lead the Heat, who got a key 21 points for Dwyane Wade and 10 from Ray Allen off the bench. Indy hung with the Heat until the wheels fell off in the second quarter, where Miami blew the game open by outscoring them 33-16. The Pacers were led by Roy Hibbert’s 18 and 8 and David West’s 14 and 6. Paul George, the young superstar-in-the-making, struggled with just 7 points on 2 of 9 shooting. As Indiana heads home for the summer to regroup (and tries to lure Chris Paul to Indianapolis), Miami starts their final battle to grab a second straight title when they host Game 1 against the Spurs on Thursday night.
