LeBron James Scores 29 as Miami Heat Oust Nets From NBA Playoffs

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- LeBron James scored 29 points and the Miami Heat reached the Eastern Conference finals for the fourth straight season by beating the visiting Brooklyn Nets 96-94 in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Dwyane Wade added 28 points for the Heat, who closed the game with a 13-3 run to win the best-of-seven series four games to one. Joe Johnson had 34 points for Brooklyn.

The two-time defending NBA champion Heat will face the Indiana Pacers or Washington Wizards in the conference finals, with the winner advancing to the NBA Finals. Indiana leads 3-2 in its series against Washington.

Johnson’s basket with four minutes, 48 seconds remaining gave Brooklyn a 91-83 lead, but the Heat scored the next 12 points -- taking the lead on Ray Allen’s 3-pointer from the corner with 32 seconds left.

Johnson hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds remaining to pull the Nets within a point. James hit one of two free throws with nine seconds left, and Brooklyn was not able to get off a final shot.
