LeBron James scored 32 points with 10 rebounds to lead the Miami Heat to a 102-90 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 May 26 of the National Basketball Association (NBA) Eastern Conference Finals in Miami. The Heat now lead, 3-1, in the best-of-seven series.

James’ double-double led the way but it was forward Chris Bosh’s reemergence that served as the real driving force behind Miami’s dominant win on May 26. Bosh had relatively quiet performances throughout the first three games of the series, scoring just 9 points in each contest.

That changed Monday as Bosh had the hot hand early on, scoring 10 points alone in the first quarter to help the Heat build a double digit lead; Bosh finished with 25 points with 6 rebounds. Guard Dwyane Wade with 15 points, joined James and Bosh as the only Miami players to score double digits.

Indiana was led by forward Paul George with 23 points and forward David West added 20 points with 12 rebounds.

The Pacers will try to avoid elimination on May 28 when they host the Heat in Game 5 of the conference finals.
