Pacers Vs. Heat, 2012 NBA Playoffs Game 6: Final Score, Heat Pull Away 105-93

Indiana tested, but when it came down to it, Miami's superstar power was more than the Pacers could handle, as the Heat won a contentious series in six games.

The Heat kept the lead at roughly ten for most of the second half after an initial spurt to start the third quarter. Dwyane Wade kept up his ridiculous play from the first half, finishing on a variety of absurd drives to the hoop, and ending up with 41 points. LeBron James predictably turned up the heat after a quiet first half, finishing with 28. In addition, Mario Chalmers' shooting provided a boost, as the point guard nailed three threes to finish with 15.

At the end of the day, the Heat were just too good for Indiana. They might have been Boshless, but LeBron and D-Wade are two of the five best players in the league in literally everybody's book, and they played like it the past two games, which was too much for Indiana to recover from. The pair scored the team's final 17 points to ice the game in the closing minutes.

It was a good season for the Pacers, and it's unfortunate that it had to end in the hands of a Flying Death Machine like Miami.
