The Indiana Pacers are an elite team, but they’ve been decidedly mediocre at times this season. Sunday’s Game 4 is one of those times, and LeBron James might have destroyed their hope of a comeback in the third quarter. Getting out on the break after pulling down a rebound, he crushed the rim and, perhaps, Indiana’s spirit.
And in the end, the Miami Heat moved one win from yet another Eastern Conference title.
James had 32 points and 10 rebounds, Bosh added 25 points — nearly matching his output from the first three games of the series combined — and the Heat grabbed control of the East finals by topping the Indiana Pacers 102-90 in Game 4 for a 3-1 lead.
