LeBron James takes Miami to the cusp of NBA Finals

User Rating: / 0

The Miami Heat are one win away from advancing to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year after a comprehensive win against the Indiana Pacers. LeBron James led the Heat scoring a game-high 32 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Miami Heat to a 102-90 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat now lead the best-of-7 series 3-1.

James silenced Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, who a day earlier made off-the-court headlines. Stephenson said he felt James was weakening after responding to trash talk in Game 3. In the end, it was Stephenson who came up short. He scored just nine points, with most of his production coming after the outcome was already decided.

The Heat led by eight after the first quarter behind a fast start from center Chris Bosh, who had a breakout game as he finished with 25 points. Heat guard Dwyane Wade added 15 points, as the Big Three were the only Miami players in double figures.
