Heat down Pacers for 18th straight victory

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Despite its lengthy winning streak, Miami came into Sunday's contest with something to prove against a Pacers team which had blown them out twice already this season.

The Heat did just that as Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers combined for 73 points to extend Miami's franchise-best winning streak to 18 games in a 105-90 blowout victory over Indiana down in South Beach.

Wade scored 23 points and had six steals to lead a defensive charge in which the Heat forced the Pacers into 18 turnovers. Bosh shot 11-for-15 and had 24 points with three blocks and Chalmers buried 5-of-6 from long distance en route to a game-high 26.

LeBron James chipped in with 13 points, seven assists and six boards in the victory for the Heat, who had lost by double-digits in both prior meetings this season with Indiana.

David West scored a team-high 24 points. Paul George struggled for 10 points on 2-for-11 shooting for Indiana, which was the last team to defeat Miami back on Feb. 1.
