Well, so goes the premise of the Miami Heat flaming out in the second round of the NBA Playoffs.
The team with the most Top 5 players won, and won somewhat convincingly.
Dwayne Wade woke up and dropped 41 points, LeBron helped him out with 28 more to close out the Pacers 105-93. The win caps a 4-2 series victory and moves the Heat to the Eastern Conference finals where they await the winner of the Boston/Philadelphia series.
