    (CNN) — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for 53 points to lead the defending NBA champion Miami Heat back to the finals with a 99-76 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

    The Heat will face the well-rested San Antonio Spurs, who swept the Memphis Grizzlies four games to none, and haven’t played since May 27.

    The NBA Finals begin Thursday in Miami.

    Roy Hibbert led the Pacers, who surprisingly pushed the Heat to a deciding Game 7, with 18 points while David West chipped in 14.

    James had 32 points, including 12 in the second quarter, to spark Miami.

    Last year, the Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games to win their second NBA championship. The Spurs have won four titles, the most recent in 2007.
