Celtics-Heat notebook

THE FACTS: The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics 99-90 Sunday in the Eastern Conference semifinals, taking a 1-0 series lead. Guard Dwyane Wade scored a game-high 38 points while reserve forward James Jones added 25 points, including five 3-pointers. Forward LeBron James added 22 points, six rebounds and five assists.

The Heat led throughout, staving off several mini-runs by the Celtics. The action hit a boil when Paul Pierce was ejected in the fourth quarter after being called for his second technical foul. Pierce finished with 19 points. Guard Ray Allen led Boston with 25 points.

QUOTABLE: "Now we have to try to get amnesia as quickly as possible and try to figure out how we can play better," Heat coack Erik Spoelstra said.

THE STAT: The Heat got 29 points from the bench, with most coming from James Jones. Bench play has been a concern in Miami most of the season.

TURNING POINT: The Heat set the tone early by jumping to a 20-14 lead after the first quarter and never came close to trailing again. The early key was their defense on Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, who finished with just eight points and seven assists. Credit Mike Bibby, who was solid defensively against Rondo.

QUOTABLE II: "I thought they were prepared, they were ready, they played with unbelievable intensity."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers.

HOT: Wade had his first breakout game against the Celtics. After struggling in the four regular season meetings, Wade was 14-for-21 from the field. He scored 13 first-quarter points, deciding to take over the game in the early stages.

NOT: Rondo was a virtual non-factor in the game. The Heat entered the series with stopping him as the main concern. Rondo shot just 3 of 10 from the field and was never able to become the distributor that has made him so effective this season.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: LeBron James had 22 points, but also recorded six rebounds and five assists. He also had two steals and two blocked shots.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Rapper Drake, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Gloria Estefan, rapper Rick Ross. Ne-Yo and Ray J.

GOOD MOVE: The Heat several different defensive looks to slow Rondo. Mike Bibby and Mario Chalmers were both effective against him. At times, coach Erik Spoelstra went to a 2-3 zone to create even more problems for the Celtics.

BAD MOVE: The Celtics seemed to lose track of Jones on several occasions, perhaps a sign they were focusing too much on James and Wade. Most of Jones' baskets came on wide open looks.

NOTABLE: Udonis Haslem and Erick Dampier were both inactive for Game 1. Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal didn't play because of a calf injury. The timetable on his return remains unknown. Jones' five 3-pointers were career-high in the postseason.

UP NEXT: Game 2 is Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena.
