(INDIANAPOLIS) — After a poor game 3 performance from Dwyane Wade, he came up big in game 4 on Sunday.
Wade scored 30 points and LeBron James added 40 with 18 rebounds and nine assists of his own to lead their team to a 101-93 win over the Pacers to even up their Eastern Conference Semi-Finals matchup at two apiece.
“I just wanted to come out today and effect the game somehow,” said Wade. “Obviously I knew I was struggling a little bit on my offensive game but I wasn’t going to let that effect my overall game, coming into this game it was all about getting a win.”
James was asked if the team came out with desperation after a tough game 3 loss.
“I think that’s a strong word, I just think it’s a team that has a lot of competitors and a lot of fight in them and wanted to play better than they did in game 3,” said James.
Danny Granger led the way for the Pacers with 20 points and Roy Hibbert, the game 3 hero, only had 10 points.
Game 5 will be Tuesday in Miami.
