The Miami Heat are just one win away from the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals following a dominating Game 5 win over the Indiana Pacers.

LeBron James led the Heat with 30 points and Dwayne Wade added 28 as Miami routed the Pacers 115-83 to take a 3-2 lead in the conference semifinals. James also recorded 10 rebounds and eight assists, while the Heat shot a postseason franchise record 61 percent from the field.

“This is our challenge right now, to leave it behind us,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “A lot of good things tonight, but we have to focus on the next one.”

The game for Indiana turned after Danny Granger left the game with a sprained left ankle in the third quarter. The Pacers trailed by 11 at the time of the injury and were outscored by 21 the rest of the way.

Indiana also finished the game without David West who left with what the team was describing as a left knee sprain.

Paul George led the Pacers with just 11 points as they shot 34 percent from the field and were outrebounded 49-35.

Game 6 is in Indianapolis on Thursday.
