After having an impressive game 5 win, the Indiana Pacers where unable to repeat their performance in game 6. Game six was a step up or go home situation and the Pacers did not have enough pace to keep up with Heat. They were blown out by the Heat last night and ended there hopes of advancing to the NBA finals.

The Heat started the game on a high and with lots of energy. The Heat had a commanding lead of 60-34 at half time. Lebron did not allow the taunting of Lance Stephenson to affect him this time. Lance was a menace in game 5 which led James  to his lowest play off total in his career. Lebron James then went on to lead his team with 25 pts, 4 rebs and 6 asts. Followed by Chris Bosh who also chipped in 25 points and 8 rebs. Both Rashard Lewis and Dwayne Wade had 13 points and Chris  Anderson had 9 pts along with 10 rebs. 

One of the main factors in this game was that the star of game 5, Paul George had a bad start. He seemed uneasy and could not get his shots in, he only had a point at half time.  However as the game progressed he got his momentum and ended  the game with 29 pts and 8 rebounds. David West chipped in 16 points. Lance Stephenson so called trash talk seemed to get to him than it did the Heat players.  He ended the game with 11 pts, he also was in foul trouble and was slapped with a flagrant 1 foul in the game. Roy Hibbert for the umpteenth time had another horrible game. Only three players from the Pacers ended with double figures. 

The Heat won the game 117-92 and will be heading to their fourth successive NBA finals. They will be seeking their third consecutive title and will face the winner of the Western Conference finals.
