Boston Falls Short in Miami as Heat Advance to Conference Finals
They led for the majority of Wednesday's Game 5, but with their season on the line, the Celtics couldn't deliver in crunch time. The Miami Heat outscored Boston by 12 points in the fourth quarter en route to a 97-87 series-clinching victory in Miami, putting Boston's championship hopes on the back burner until next season.
Ray Allen led the Celtics with 18 points, including five 3s, while Kevin Garnett earned a double-double with his 15 points and 11 rebounds. Dwyane Wade (34 points) and LeBron James (33 points) were the game's top performers.
