Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Despite its lengthy winning streak, Miami came
into Sunday's contest with something to prove against a Pacers team which had
blown them out twice already this season.
The Heat did just that as Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers combined
for 73 points to extend Miami's franchise-best winning streak to 18 games in a
105-90 blowout victory over Indiana down in South Beach.
Wade scored 23 points and had six steals to lead a defensive charge in which
the Heat forced the Pacers into 18 turnovers. Bosh shot 11-for-15 and had 24
points with three blocks and Chalmers buried 5-of-6 from long distance en
route to a game-high 26.
LeBron James chipped in with 13 points, seven assists and six boards in the
victory for the Heat, who had lost by double-digits in both prior meetings
this season with Indiana.
David West scored a team-high 24 points. Paul George struggled for 10 points
on 2-for-11 shooting for Indiana, which was the last team to defeat Miami back
on Feb. 1.
