Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Entering this lockout-shortened season,
many expected games on consecutive nights to wear down even the league's most
Not so for the Heat on Tuesday.
LeBron James netted 23 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists as
Miami rolled over Indiana, 105-90, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Norris Cole tied a career-high with 20 off the bench, Dwyane Wade chipped in
16 and Chris Bosh added 13 for Miami, which has won back-to-back-to-back
games. The Heat defeated Atlanta on Sunday and Milwaukee on Monday, and have
won four straight overall.
Six players scored in double-figures for Indiana in defeat, led by David
West's 14. Paul George and A.J. Price each had 12, Tyler Hansbrough scored 11
and Dahntay Jones and Roy Hibbert each had 10 for the Pacers, who dropped
their fourth consecutive game, extending a season-high losing streak.
Miami swept games on three consecutive nights for the first time since 1999.
It was the third time such a sweep has occurred in the NBA this season, and
the first to occur entirely on the road.
