The Miami Heat made good use of the home court advantage they swiped in Indianapolis last week, wrapping a 99-87 win on Saturday night and with it a 2-1 Eastern Conference Finals lead. Miami’s attack was once again highlighted by LeBron James (Nike Zoom Soldier VII) and Dwyane Wade (Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 Encore), whose 26 and 23 points, respectively, overpowered a sputtering Pacers offense forced to rely on recently concussed Paul George’s 17 points, Roy Hibbert’s 16, and David West’s 13 to compete.
Which actually worked for awhile — Indiana built a 15-point lead early — but then the James-Wade duo was bolstered by Ray Allen’s 16-point second half, including four three-pointers in the fourth quarter.
Game 4 takes place Monday night in Miami, 8:30pm ET on ESPN.
