Pacers vs. Heat final score, NBA playoffs 2014: LeBron James, Chris Bosh dominate as Miami takes 3-1 series lead

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The two-time defending champions easily took care of business on their home floor.

Indiana is in trouble. On Monday night, the Miami Heat took a 3-1 series lead in South Beach as they beat the Pacers, 102-90.

Chris Bosh provided a spark in the first half, going bonkers from beyond the arc on his way to scoring 17 points in the first two quarters. The explosion was a welcome change from the Miami forward, who had scored just nine points in each of the first three games of the series.

In the second half, it was all LeBron James, who had a few eye-popping plays including a step-back three-pointer to beat the shot clock and a coast-to-coast dunk over Paul George.

Indiana's Roy Hibbert was held scoreless for the fourth time this postseason, registering just five rebounds, one assist and one block. Lance Stephenson was also strangely absent, taking just seven shots total as Miami dominated on both ends of the floor.

For the Heat, James led the way with 32 points on 13-of-21 shooting, grabbing 10 rebounds with five assists and two steals. Bosh poured in 25 points to go with six rebounds, one assist and a block. Dwyane Wade scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Indiana was led by George, who scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting, adding seven rebounds, three assists and one steal. David West scored 20 points on 9-of-18 shooting, with a game-high 12 rebounds to go with four assists. Luis Scola scored 12 points off the bench.

Game 5 is Wednesday, May 28 at 8:30 p.m. ET in Indianapolis.
