LeBron James: LeBron Drops 41 to Lead Miami Heat Over Indiana Pacers, 117-112
LeBron James Records Double-Double As Heat Battle Back From 14-Point Deficit
His old team may be in the midst of a record-breaking losing streak, but LeBron James and the Miami Heat are doing just fine these days. They came into Tuesday night's game against the Indiana Pacers on a six-game win streak, and they pushed it to seven with a 117-112 victory.
LeBron paced all scorers with 41 points, and also added 13 rebounds and eight assists, and the Heat were able to overcome a 14-point second half deficit. This was largely thanks to the fact that the Pacers, who lost for the first time under interim head coach Frank Vogel, made just five of their 18 field goal attempts in the fourth quarter.
LeBron did most of his damage in the first half, as he scored 26 points on 11 of 12 shooting. But the Heat went into the break trailing 66-63 anyway, as the Pacers were able to capitalize on some pretty sloppy Miami defense.
After grabbing the early advantage, the Heat did not have the lead for good until a little over four-and-a-half remaining in the fourth quarter.
The Heat now hit the road for a four-game road swing through Detroit, Boston, Indiana, and Toronto.
