The Miami Heat are through to the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row after beating the Indiana Pacers 117-92.

The Miami Heat have secured their place in the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row, clinching a 4-2 win over the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals.

In game six, the two-time defending champions opened up an 11-point lead by the end of the first quarter as they cruised to a 117-92 win over the top seeds.

LeBron James and Chris Bosh led the scoring as the Heat continued to extend their lead in the first half, taking a 26-point lead into the break.

Paul George led a fightback from the Pacers in the fourth quarter, but the home side's lead was too big for Indiana to avoid the defeat.

The Heat will face the winner of the Western Conference final series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs in the Finals, which get underway next Thursday.
