MIAMI, May 13 (UPI) -- LeBron James poured in 32 points and grabbed 15 rebounds Sunday, sparking Miami's 95-86 win over Indiana in Game 1 of their conference semifinal series.

James, who was named the 2012 NBA MVP Saturday, responded with a big game for the Heat, who drew first blood in their best-of-seven, second-round Eastern Conference series with the Pacers.

Dwyane Wade added 29 points for the second-seeded Heat, who broke open a close game with an 8-2 run to start the fourth quarter and notched their 13th straight home playoff win against a conference foe.

Miami forward Chris Bosh exited the game with an abdominal strain late in the first half after scoring 13 points.

Indiana was led by David West's 17 points and 12 rebounds. Roy Hibbert added 17 and 11.
