Heat burn Pacers for Game 3 win

Miami makes a statement, blowing out Indiana 114-96 to take 2-1 lead.  
THE FACTS: Udonis Haslem (17 points), Mario Chalmers (14) and Chris Andersen (nine) combined for 40 points on 16-for-19 shooting as the Miami Heat put on a dominant performance in routing the Indiana Pacers 114-96 Sunday in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern finals.
LeBron James scored 18 of his 22 points to set the tone in Miami's 70-point first half, and the role-players took it from there. David West led Indiana with 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Roy Hibbert had 20 points and 17 boards. Game 4 is Tuesday in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
QUOTABLE: "We had a lot of contributions tonight so it was a good step forward. But we know how competitive this series is. We already have to start putting this behind us and now start getting ready for the next challenge, the next battle in Game 4."
-- Miami coach Erik Spoelstra
THE STAT: Miami became the first team in NBA history to win five straight road games by double-figure margins in a single postseason .
