Dwyane Wade and LeBron James turned around a season on the brink with perhaps the most remarkable week by
Capping a 105-93 victory over Indiana Pacers in Game 6 on Thursday night that sent the Heat back to the Eastern Conference finals.
Wade scored 41 points, James had 28 and Miami wrapped up the series 4-2, advancing to face either Boston or Philadelphia.
But this was about more than one game.
This was a dazzling trilogy, Wade and James taking control when the Heat were down and looked like they might be out.
Seven days earlier, Miami trailed 2-1 in the series after getting routed 94-75 in Indianapolis. The fired-up Pacers had another game on their home court and a chance to build a commanding lead.
Instead, the Big Three-Turned-Two took over.
With Chris Bosh sidelined by an abdominal injury, James and Wade soared to new heights in their two-man game. Over the course of three dazzling games, James scored 98 points, grabbed 34 rebounds and dished out 24 assists. Wade had 99 points, 22 rebounds and 11 assists.
Next up, either the Celtics or 76ers in a series that starts Monday in Miami. Of course, nothing less than an NBA title will make for a satisfying summer in South Beach.
