Miami Heat Routed the Indiana Pacers to Reach the Finals for 4th Straight Year

In the regular season the Indiana Pacers has been dominant, but still they don't have an answer for the Miami Heat in the playoffs.

After the win, Miami Heat is just the 3rd team in NBA history to reach the finals in four consecutive years. The Heat easily dismantle the Pacers defense and overwhelm them in the offensive end with a 117-92 drubbing of the Pacers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference championship. LeBron James and Chris Bosh anchored the Miami Heat win with 25 points apiece.

In an interview after the game Lebron said: "I'm blessed. Very blessed. Very humbled."
"And we won't take this opportunity for granted. It's an unbelievable franchise, it's an unbelievable group. And we know we still have work to do, but we won't take this for granted. We're going to four straight Finals and we will never take this for granted."

Dwyane Wade and Rashard Lewis chipped in 13 points each for the Heat. Miami was trailing 9-2 in the first quarter but they got hot and produced 75 points by halftime.

Indiana Pacers was the top team in the regular season which was their goal because of a bitter lost in Game 7 of the East finals in Miami last year. It didn't work too well, maybe next year they should avoid game 6 in Miami too.

Paul George scored 29 points for Indiana, David West had 16 and Lance Stephenson finished with 11 points. The fans booed and heckled Lance Stephenson all night.

Miami Heat will have to wait for the San Antonio or Oklahoma City Western conference finals to see who will they be up against in the Finals.
