INDIANAPOLIS (Sporting Alert) — Dwyane Wade scored 28 of his 30 points in the second half and LeBron James dropped another double for the Miami Heat to beat the Indiana Pacers 101-93 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal Sunday.
Wade, who shot just 2 of 13 for five points in game three, started with zero points in the first 22-minutes and had just eight in the first half.
However, the star guard came alive after the interval and he and James, who scored 40 points in the game, combined for 70 of the team’s overall put-ups.
James came out aggressively to lead the way with points and rebounds after grabbing 18 points in the vital road win.
Udonis Haslem scored 14 important points for the Heat, including two big jumpers down the stretch when Indiana looked as though they were about to make a late surge.
Meanwhile, Danny Granger led the way for the Pacers with 20 points, while Darren Collison finished with 16 off the bench.
Miami, which is without the injured Chris Bosh will host Game 5 on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
