Associated Press

The Miami Heat bounced back from LeBron James’ poor Game 5 performance, lighting up the Indiana Pacers in Game 6, 117-92, to clinch their fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

The Eastern Conference Finals matchup and the result were forecast since the beginning of the season, as reported by Matthew Glenesk of The Indianapolis Star.
