The Miami Heat have put the Boston Celtics in a 2-0 hole in their best-of-seven series after an impressive 102-91 victory. A 14-0 by Miami late in the fourth put the Celtics away. The series now shifts to Boston for Game 3 on Saturday night. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.
LeBron James scored 24 of his 35 points in the second half, Dwyane Wade added 28 and the Heat used a late 14-0 run to pull away and beat the aching Celtics 102-91 in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night.
“Feel good about it,” James said. “Series is far — far, far, far — away from over. It’s really just beginning for us.”
Chris Bosh had a solid game as well, put together a double-double with 17 points and 11 boards. Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce all had solid games for Boston, but Ray Allen and the rest of the team in green struggled at times. It goes without saying that Saturday night’s Game 3in Boston is a must win for the Celtics. Tip-off for Game 3 is set for 7:00 and will be televised on ABC.
