Dwyane Wade scored 25 points in only 28 minutes, Jermaine O'Neal added 19 points and the Miami Heat enjoyed their largest victory margin this season by topping the Indiana Pacers, 114-80, last night.
The Heat started 8-for-8 from the field for a 17-3 lead and never looked back, building a 66-44 advantage that was its largest at halftime since January 2007.
Troy Murphy scored 16 for Indiana, which dropped its sixth straight. It could have been much worse for the Pacers if they hadn't outscored Miami 14-0 during one first-half stretch.
The dominance was thorough. Miami shot 49 percent to Indiana's 31 percent, held a 55-40 rebounding edge and outscored the Pacers 54-24 in the paint.
"We talked about our habits and being an every-possession team," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Regardless of whether the ball's going in or not, you have to compete and get after it on the other end."
Pacers rookie Tyler Hansbrough scored 10 points on 0-for-5 shooting, becoming the first NBA player since Andre Miller on Nov. 28, 2005, to have a double-double without a field goal, according to STATS LLC. Hansbrough was 10-for-10 from the foul line and added 10 rebounds.
"It's odd," Hansbrough said. "But it's a double-double."
