Then came the playoffs. And the question was answered — emphatically. The Heat became the third franchise in NBA history to reach the title series in four consecutive seasons, a laugher of a conference-title finale getting them there again Friday night. LeBron James and Chris Bosh each scored 25 points, and Miami eliminated the Pacers ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-580095812014-05-30T23:25:34.467-06:00" id="#license-2014-05-30T23:25:34.467-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
