Heat-Celtics notebook

THE FACTS: The Miami Heat took a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals by defeating the Boston Celtics 102-91 Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena. LeBron James led all scorers with 35 points, doing most of his work in the second half. With the Celtics closing late, James scored on a three-point play to push the lead to 88-80.

The Heat's Big Three was too much for the Celtics. James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 80 points, offsetting a slow night from the bench. Wade scored 28 points on 8-for-20 shooting while Bosh added 17 points and 11 rebounds. The Heat shot 45 percent from the field, including 7-for-16 from 3-point range.

The Celtics were led by Rajon Rondo's 20 points and 12 assists, but received subpar games from Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

QUOTABLE: "LeBron was physically, mentally, and emotionally tough for us tonight. That set the tone for everybody and Dwyane, obviously, on both ends of the court."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

THE STAT: The Heat's Big Three outscored the Celtics' Big Three 80-36. That was the difference. Even though the Celtics' reserves were solid, they can't keep up when the Heat's core players are scoring so much more.

TURNING POINT: The Celtics tied the score at 80 in the fourth quarter, but Wade found an open Mario Chalmers for a 3-pointer that started a 14-0 run. That was just enough to hold off the Celtics, who made several runs in the game.

QUOTABLE II: "They're both playing very well. They've proven that they do this. They're going to get points, and I believed that going into the series. But they can't be so efficient getting 'em."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers, speaking of Wade and James

HOT: James had his best game of the series. The highlight came when he scored 13 points in the third quarter to keep the Heat ahead. He was 14-for-25 from the field and had seven rebounds and two assists.

NOT: After a big Game 1, Celtics guard Ray Allen was held in check for the most part by Wade. Allen was just 2-for-7 from the field. His touches were limited because of a stronger defensive effort by Wade.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: The Heat have said all season that Bosh is the most important player. He scored 17 points, but also pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Rapper Drake, singer Gloria Estefan, actor Christian Slater, former Heat player Glen Rice, tennis player Serena Williams.

GOOD MOVE: The Heat did a solid job of taking Allen out of the game. After giving him several open looks in the series opener, Allen spent the game being blanketed by Wade. Without Allen's outside shooting, it left most of the burden on Pierce and Garnett.

BAD MOVE: The Celtics gave up too many "energy" plays to Joel Anthony. When Anthony gets a blocked shot, rebound or putback, it gives the Heat crowd more emotion. Anthony tipped a ball late in the game that kept a possession alive. It resulted in a 3-point play by James that extended the lead.

NOTABLE: Udonis Haslem and Erick Dampier were both inactive for the Heat in Game 2. Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal has yet to play in the series because of a calf injury. Rivers said O'Neal will be questionable for Game 3. Heat guard Mario Chalmers went to the floor with knee pain after being rolled onto by Glen Davis, but said it may have been an overreaction because it was the same knee he hurt near the end of the regular season.

UP NEXT: Game 3 is Saturday in Boston (8 p.m. ET, ABC).
