      Miami uses strong third quarter to defeat Indiana

      LeBron James scored 30 points,

      Udonis Haslem made his last eight shots on the way to a 16-point night, and the Miami Heat used a dominant third quarter to turn things around and beat the Indiana Pacers 90-79 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday.



      Mario Chalmers scored 12 and Dwyane Wade added 10 for the Heat, who lead the series 3-2 and will look to close it out at Indiana on Saturday night.

      The Heat ousted the Pacers in six games in a second-round matchup last season.



      Paul George had 27 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 22 points from Roy Hibbert and 17 from David West.
