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.
