Wade's 41 points send Pacers packing

Posted:

The Miami Heat are in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Heat rode a 41-point performance by Dwyane Wade and used a 9-0 run at the end of the third quarter to eliminate the Indiana Pacers in six games, 105-93. Wade scored 26 in the first half. LeBron James had another big game with 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists.

The Heat needed the combined 69 points from their two superstars. Center Chris Bosh is out with an abdominal injury. Forward Udonis Haslem missed this game because of a one-game suspension for a flagrant foul. But Heat coach Erik Spoelstra  says his team "has enough" to get to the NBA Finals.

Miami now awaits the winner of the Boston-Philadelphia conference semifinal.

The Celtics and 76ers will get a couple of days to gear up for the decisive Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinals, after Philadelphia extended the series with a home win Wednesday night. The Sixers will be trying to reach the conference finals for the first time since 2001.

No team has won consecutive games in the series. Game 7 is Saturday night in Boston. The Celtics are 17-4 lifetime in Game 7's at home.
