Pacers Trounce Heat To Win Eastern Conference Finals Opener
Posted Sunday, May 18th 2014 @ 6pm

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Paul George scored 24 points, David West had 19, and the Indiana Pacers protected their home court with a 107-96 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday to take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

Indiana led wire-to-wire and never even gave the Heat a chance to tie the score after starting the game with a 5-0 lead.

Game 2 is Tuesday in Indiana. The home team has won all five meetings this season.

Dwyane Wade scored 27 points and LeBron James had 25 for the two-time defending NBA champions, who lost for only the second time in 10 playoff games.

Indiana extended the lead to 19 in the third quarter and Miami couldn't get closer than nine the rest of the way.
