MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James scored 32 points and the Miami Heat powered their way back to the NBA Finals with a 99-76 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Dwyane Wade ended his struggles with 21 points for the defending NBA champions, who will host the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night to begin their third straight finals appearance.
Miami took control with a 33-point second quarter and had a huge lead for most of the second half after six mostly difficult games against the Pacers.
Roy Hibbert scored 18 points for the Pacers, but All-Star Paul George fouled out with just seven points.
