There are many reasons why LeBron James is a two-time reigning MVP, and he was glad to remind the Indiana Pacers of a few of them in Tuesday night’s game. Coming into the match, the Pacers were aiming for a fifth consecutive win under new interim coach Frank Vogel. The Heat hoped to extend their winning streak to seven games, and avenge a 93-77 loss at home to the Pacers on November 22nd of last year. Indiana almost had its way when James was given a small break at the start of the third quarter, but the game belonged to Miami when LeBron was in play. Leading his team with yet another double-double this season, James led his team until the final minute to take the game 117-112 after regulation time. Odds.
To put it lightly, Miami is on fire! With this win, the Heat [38-14] moved to five games ahead of the second-place Atlanta hawks in the Southeast Division. A lot of that had to do with player of the game LeBron James, who finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists. He was all over the place, dunking, flashing out of the high-post and making his presence felt on both ends of the court. He was helped by the likes of Chris Bosh [19 points, 7 rebounds], Dwayne Wade [17 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists] and Mario Chalmers [16 points, 2 assists], all of who scored in double-digits. The Heat lost their lead for a short time, but were able to gain it back once James returned to the court. Scores.
The Pacers [21-28] came close to a fifth straight victory under their new coach, but fell short in the end. When James exited for a short period of 3:35 in the third, Indiana managed to outscore Miami 18-4. Had the Pacers won, they would have joined Boston and Dallas as teams who beat the Heat twice this season.
