INDIANAPOLIS- The Miami Heat are back in control of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals.

LeBron James scored 22 points and the Heat shot 55 percent in a 114-96 win over the Pacers at Indiana, giving Miami a 2-1 series lead. Udonis Hsalem (yoo-DAH'-nihs HAZ'-lehm) shot 8-for-9 and finished with 17 points and seven rebounds as the Heat bounced back from Friday's 97-93 loss to the Pacers. Dwyane (dwayn) Wade chipped in 18 points, eight assists and four rebounds for Miami, which took command by outscoring Indiana 36-26 to grab a 14-point halftime lead.

The Heat broke a team playoff record by scoring 70 points in the opening half, and tied a team playoff mark with just one first-half turnover.

David West had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, while Roy Hibbert added 20 points and a game-high 17 boards. Indiana also shot 8-for-14 from three-point range but just 40 percent from the field overall.

The series stays in Indianapolis for Game 4 on Tuesday.
