• Pacers return to Indiana down 3-2 in series against the Heat

    May 23, 2012 No comments

    LeBron James scored 30 points, Dwyane Wade added 28, and the Miami Heat moved a win away from another trip to the Eastern Conference finals with a 115-83 victory over the suddenly hurting Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.

    James added 10 rebounds and eight assists. Shane Battier scored 13 and Mario Chalmers had eight points and 11 rebounds.

    The Heat lead the best-of-seven East semifinals 3-2, with Game 6 in Indiana on Thursday night. Miami shot a franchise playoff-record 61 percent from the floor.

    Paul George scored 11 points for Indiana, with starting forwards Danny Granger and David West adding 10 points apiece. Granger left with a sprained left ankle in the third quarter, and West left with what the Pacers called a left knee sprain at the end of that period.

    Granger’s status for Game 6 is uncertain.

    The Pacers will practice at the team hotel today in Miami, before returning to Indianapolis.
